Photos from Rajan Krishnan's "oRe" Show

Rajan Krishnan in purple shirtHere is a truly gorgeous fifty-two image slideshow from Rajan Krishnan's oRe/Substances of Earth-I show opening that took place on 19 January 2008 at Bodhi Art in Mumbai, including nice shots of the installation pieces. Rajan, in the purple shirt here, provided me with these photos, which were taken by Ajilal. The first image in the slideshow includes writer Renu Ramanath, seated and looking up, Rajan's wife and creator of SpaceOut.

One of many compelling aspects of the installation that is made of thousands of small clay pieces is this: more than one hundred people contributed to its making! An excellent article about the exhibit, including an interview with Rajan, is available on ArtConcerns. I have also mentioned this work in postings last December and January.
