Gathering Leaves As They Fall

The Falling leaf project is a compilation of works by students of the College of Art, New Delhi, derived through the collaborative efforts of artist Adw­ait Singh. The event is a precursor to a larger process undertaken by the students for the Biennale in Kochi. The project was conceptualised around French philosopher Jacques Ranciere’s anti-hierarchy concept of the ‘Ignorant Schoolmaster’ and followed the shift of the curatorial age­ncy from the curator to the students in order to reinvent art purely through their eyes. What makes this collection of artwork stand out is that instead of following a particular theme, each student was given sole responsibility of the project, making the model more open. The artwork thus aims at depicting original pieces reflecting the ideas of each student, which coheres as part of a larger idea. The idea was to do away with the terminology of ‘selection’ and replacing it with ‘participation-collaboration’. Till Jul 25, Latitude 28
