within


Through my first solo exhibition titled WITHIN, I wanted explore the layers of the worlds that lies within us.

Starting out from the dissonance of urban working mind, WITHIN was a quest of a more fulfilling life.

Our identities are based on social choices rather than individual ones, leading to a mindless herd, thus keeping us away from discovering our identities. Through this narrative I have tried to question the journey to discovery of identity. The turbulence in our minds, to me, is an outcome of this denial of clarity.

The purpose of this journey to remind myself of my freedom to make sensible and transformative choices. The only way to social catharsis is through the dense forests of one’s own mind.

Here are the works displayed at Within.
