What Remains

What Remains

With the seismic shift taking place in society as we know it, we are faced with a question: Through constant change, is there strength in what remains? In regard to the personal or the intimate, life may be nothing more than a stripping away. But when something fades away, does newness ever bloom? Without any elaboration or discussion, Method asked four artists to give their own interpretation for a simple yet complex phrase: What Remains? 
About the Artists

Yashwant Singh 
Born in Bharatpur (Rajasthan) in 1994, Yashwant Singh received both BFA (2017) and MFA (2019) degrees from College of Art, New Delhi, where he is now based. His continuous engagement in Art Practice has developed a distinctive approach to painting, primarily figurative. Yashwant’s work locates its foundation in his strong perseverance of the idea of landscape and its presence in current times. He engages himself in painting, performance and sculpture. He often uses his own body to take body prints. Yashwant’s work has been included in numerous group exhibitions such as Kochi Student Biennale, AIFACS, National Exhibition, Bombay Art Society and Gallery ONKAF. He is an active member of “in_process” open source performance group from 2018.

Roshni Bhatia
Roshni is an artist and art-therapist based in Bengaluru, India. Her artistic practice explores intuition as a tool of enquiry in understanding the many facets of the self. It spans a variety of media and allows for the articulation of notions that are not limited by language.  She highlights the process of making in her work by reassessing what is often seen as ‘errors’. Roshni received her bachelor's in Contemporary Art Practices from Srishti Institute of Art, Design, and Technology, Bengaluru, and masters in Art Therapy from Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore. As a trauma-informed art therapist, she has worked with children, youth, and communities from India and Singapore.

Arshi Sayed
Arshi Sayed is a Mumbai-based multi-media artist with a diploma in graphic design and communication. Her work revolves around the exploration of the self that exists within the visible self. An ecosystem of passing thoughts, obsessive behaviors, death, and grief; an interplay of various forms of matter. It explores mental and spiritual displacement, growth of metaphysical life forms; a contraption of being and believing.

The show is on view until 27th November at Method, Kalaghoda.
