Ajit Chauhan, Candela Bado, Dimitra Kousteridou Curated by Antonakis
Snehta Residency is pleased to present a show by current artists-in-residence, Ajit Chauhan from San Francisco, Candela Bado from Uruguay who is based in The Hague and Dimitra Kousteridou, who lives and works in Amsterdam. The exhibition is a map to decipher "materials" the three artists encountered during the period they stayed and worked in Athens. A handbook - in narrative form - for the deconstruction of objecthood.
Ajit Chauhan’s work is characterized by slow, minimalist, often repetitive gestures. He has a preference for working with modest materials. One body of work that will be shown was made by erasing selected portions of record album covers. They are housed inside crates that function as architectural models of the Art Deco apartment buildings in and around Kypseli. Another body of work is a series of textiles that are unwoven, a process of removing material to find an inner essence or structure within the material.
