An exhibition is always an act of placing artworks and understanding the

importance of engaging with a site and, at the same time producing a polylogue

with other spaces. A place is no fixed thing – it has an episodic history and takes

its particular aspect through an intense immersion.

 

We recognize the Godrej Complex as a space devoted to natural and technical

sciences, and have treated its representation as a live entity, rather than a

museum of dead objects – creating contexts that represent different physical,

psychological, historical, cultural realms and realities.

 

Within the three silo(s) are spaces that embody the conditions in which histories,

stories, objects and memories find their voices and interlink to present

themselves as part of microcosmic memory theatres – unfreezing the

associations typically made with the Godrej Complex and stressing its continual

transformational evolution.

 

As artists, a significant part of our own practice has been one of enquiry,

research and presentations of artifacts, experiences as well as parallel personal

and public histories. We are striving towards legibility, a vocabulary of analog

experiences in a digital world – distilled through complex processes – to present

a sense of the History, Achievements and Future of Godrej as a corporation, entity

and cultural icon.
