Someday it all has to end

By Srinivasa Prasad
Preview: 3rd September 2009, 7:00 p.m.
On display from 4th September to 7th October 2009

Someday it all has to end is, in a sense, an autobiographical work. The work, which has been constructed using bamboo sticks and thorns, was built concurrently with the artistís construction of his new home. The work directs our attention to the process, material and struggle that go into the building of oneís home, a place where oneís location becomes fixed. Through the process of construction the artist was drawn to the question of transitory nature of birdís nests as birds through their lifetime build several homes in different places. The work that resembles the nests of the weaverbird examines whether the long, strenuous process of creation is only restricted to humankind.

Srinivasa Prasad has previously shown his work as part of the Galerie Krinzinger Projektes in Vienna, Austria. His work has been exhibited at the Singapore Biennale (2008) and at Six Feet Under Autopsy of Our Relation to the Dead show at Kunstmuseum Bern, Switzerland (2006). In 2007 Prasad was part of a sculpture residency at the Arcus project in Moriya, Japan. The artistís previous work also includes site-specific installations in Bangalore - Work Under Progress at Samkalpa Art Studio and Save my only home, Earth at Ganganagar Last Bus Stop, commissioned by the Transport Department, Bangalore. The artistís work was also exhibited in Sthala Puranagalu / Two Dialogues and a Conversation curated by Pushpamala N in 1999. Srinivasa Prasad completed his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Sculpture from College of Fine Arts, Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat in 1996 and his Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Chitrakala Institute of Advanced Studies, Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat in 1998.
