Fabien Charuau

Many of my projects take place mainly in small town India: places on the periphery of nearly everything, but where I contend most Indian visual mainstream culture is shaped.

The other preoccupation of my research is to make sense in this digital age of the profusion of images generated every single second by humans and machines. I have found and identified images that survive and float on top of this tsunami. They are mainly disconnected from their creators and their places of origin: they exist because they have to.

The auto-generation of images through the Internet or modern visual technologies is fascinating and, for me, very spiritual. I posit that visual machines have an inherent poetry, the sheer pressure of the statistics helps to reveal it.

C & L Shows

A Thousand Kisses Deep
14 August - 26 September

Chatterjee & Lal is excited to host Fabien Charuau’s major solo exhibition, showcasing works that he has created over the past four years.

The artist focuses on the materiality of digital images and, in particular, their auto-generation, both still and moving, by code-based processes.

The conceptual underpinnings of the exhibition relate to contemporary life in India, including the expression of intimacy amongst young adults, and the manner in which devotional practices have moved online.
