“Play Pray Pop Out” Exhibition
“Play Pray Pop Out”, Thukral & Tagra’s first solo show in Thailand, continues the portrayal of mythological events and mathematical assertions through the vocabulary of sports. It is a musing experience of a conscious being trapped in the perplexity of the set of circumstances keeping Ramakien/Ramayana as a central paradigm.
The being is conditioned to think, the fragments of social construct demands either to speculate or contemplate. The mind of the being is itinerant, weighed by dilemmas, dignity, love, loyalty, devotion and duty. The artwork seeks to make explicit motifs that are implicit in a contemporary realm.
About Thukral & Tagra
Jiten Thukral and Sumir Tagra work collaboratively in a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, Installation, Game Theory and design.
Thukral & Tagra blur the lines between Fine Art and Popular Culture, product placement and exhibition design, artistic inspiration and media hype. Their works comment on the globalization of consumer culture and the repercussions of this as it is being experienced in India today.
While both playful and humorous, their works express thoughtful questions about the nature of Indian identity as it is articulated by Indians themselves and projected on to India by the rest of the world.
