Far from mundane: An exhibition of emotions

A group show at India Habitat Centre in New Delhi presents grief and joy and all emotions in between.

Some of the most striking works at ‘Mundane Expressions’, a group show by painters and sculptors, were the Buddha paintings by Sirattiya Bora; the bound and helpless aam aadmi in Nitin Majumdar’s The Common Man and the intensely colourful canvases by Runa Biswas.

Among the sculptures, there was something vibrant about the cast-metal human figures that captured gestures soaring upwards. Bora’s use of colour is magnificent, and her works have a serene quality, except in one work – the most powerful at the exhibition – that’s titled Myanmar, depicting a decapitated monk holding a white flower sitting on a bed of severed heads.

Where: Palm Court Gallery, India Habitat Centre, Till Dec. 11; 11am – 8pm.
