People went down memory lane as Vir Kotak previewed his first-ever solo show on photography titled ‘The Memory Project’ at Jehangir art gallery. This evening hosted by the Kotak family saw the presence of Vishal Bhardwaj, Gaurav Bhatia, Shireen Gandhy and Dr. Arshiya Lokhadwala among others. You could see that Vir delves deep into memories, both literally and artistically. The works included two installations, prints on archival paper and archival prints on dibond, all exploring the common underlying theme: A memory is a random mutation of an untrue recollection. Several works feature text written directly on the piece, to not just serve as the title, but in a bid to put into context the chain of thought that led to its creation. It was an exploration of the twin concepts of minimalism and the search for infinity. Vir uses abstract photography, graphite interventions and stainless steel installations to present an engaging narrative.
