An exhibition entitled “Thirst” by Nuril Prabhat Bhosale is on at the Jehangir Art Gallery.
Bhosale is a Thirsty man. He keeps looking for water all the time to quench his thirst. When he sipped the first drop of water, he experienced what life is. It is not just water he thirsts for. He has tasted life and now he wants to taste other things. For him, a line is a movement, a symbol of life.
Just like a man thirsts for water, a line also feels thirsty for shape. In its journey from a dot to a line and then into a form. It experiences and creates life in this process.
“It momentarily gets joy as a shape, but again it thirsts – to become a form. Even if all the water from the ocean is poured into just one pot, it is not satisfied – it still thirsts. The pot keeps its wide mouth open, facing the skies – without blinking – waiting for two more drops of water.
Even after its thirst is qunched, when it becomes a shape – it still wants to become another form, it still thirsts….
Nuril appears to have a highly developed imagination – like a poet’s. Anything goes – a bit of surrealism too.
The exhibition will go on till April 17. Contact cell: 9405141617.
