Art, they say, imitates life. Bose Krishnamachari, an internationally acclaimed artist from Kochi, has done precisely that with his latest series of installations, titled ‘The Mirror Sees Best in the Dark’, on display at the Emami Art Gallery in Calcutta from December 2, 2019. The ‘dark’ in Krishnamachari’s artwork reflects the turmoil over Kashmir, citizenship, NRC and our increasingly polarised society.

According to Ranjit Hoskote, a noted art critic, through the installations, Krishnamachari “confronts the increasingly extreme discourses that shape our consciousness. In Bose’s handling, these discourses crystallise around keywords that then become slogans, deployed in the witch hunts and debased debates that characterise a polarised society”.
