Minam Apang

Spanning the last decade, Goa-based Minam Apang has become well known both in India, and internationally, for her drawings on different media. In 2012 the artist was selected for the major Triennale, ‘The Ungovernables’, at the New Museum, New York, curated by Eungie Joo.

Chatterjee & Lal is pleased to announce the new exhibition by Minam Apang. The works included have been executed over the last two years. The artist has used charcoal as her medium, creating extraordinarily sensitive drawings, on paper and cloth, which vary in scale from the intimate to the monumental.  The topographical forms discernible in many of the landscapes have led to the series title, Moon Mirrors Mountains. At times the objects of her inquiry are rendered with a measure of realism, whilst at others they are presented abstracted and in their most elemental form: the moon as the circle, the mountain as the triangle.

This will be Apang’s fourth solo exhibition with Chatterjee & Lal. The artist has shown in various institutional settings including, 2012 Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; 2012 The Ungovernables, curated by Eungie Joo, New Museum, New York; 2011 Prague Biennale V; 2009 Asia Pacific Triennial APT6, Queensland Art Gallery. She has been invited to high profile residencies including Artist in residency, AIT (Arts Initiative Tokyo). In 2013 Civitella Ranieri Foundation, Umbertide, Italy, awarded a fellowship to the artist.
