Project role: senior exhibit designer / art director / project coordinator
The design of the inaugural exhibition for the Piramal Art Foundation and the framing of the collection of artworks on display invite visitors to examine how memory shaped art in India and how it continues to play an integral role in Indian art today. The external shell of the structure provides glimpses to the artwork on display through a series of framed openings, while keeping the overall structure visually permeable from all sides. The internal cubic volume draws attention and curiosity of the visitors and provides a culmination to the sequential journey through space. The methodology of storytelling within the exhibition invites visitors to rely on their memory to discover the story of modern Indian art, with the core visual design approach utilising layering, fragmenting and deconstructing techniques to entice visitors to recall the suggested elements in their mind.
