Featured Artist      
Valsan Koorma Kolleri      

The well known Indian sculptor Valsan Koorma Kolleri, a creator of the most eloquent and moving works of sculpture in the last three decades in India. He received several grants and awards in India as well as abroad.

The range of materials which he now uses has widened to include wood, leather, bones, hair, nests and hives, things which have been outgrown or discarded, having aged or lost their value in the quest for novelty.

Turning loss to advantage, he creates a theatre where these things are reinstated, pending further use; by virtue of their relationship to their surroundings, they encompass a space which far exceeds their immediate limits.

Kolleri has an affiliation with working processes which marginalizes any message that stands apart from the act of putting a piece together.

As he asserts, concept apart, the placement of the object or the angle of inclination which it finally assumes is in fact the sculpture, the instant of intervention creating a value hither to non - existent.
