Nature Morte is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Martand Khosla entitled “MesoDomain.” Trained as an architect, Khosla’s practice is deeply involved with the process of construction and the dilemmas of urban India, exploring both continuity and transformation. The exhibition will consist of installations and sculptures using different materials and forms, each responding to issues such as planning, shelter, migration, and the moment of contact between order and disorder.
The artist has chosen the term “MesoDomain” for the title of the exhibition. He defines it as the space in between known areas, without boundaries, self-regulated and intangible. This, the artist believes, is the state of cities in India today, both physically and psychologically, defined only through unpredictable thoughts and multiple interpretations of reality.
Martand Khosla was born in New Delhi in 1975, where he continues to live and work. He holds a Diploma from the Architectural Association of London and is a partner in Romi Khosla Design Studio, which develops a wide range of architectural projects. Khosla’s art works have been featured in two solo exhibitions in New Delhi (at Seven Art Ltd and the School of Art and Aesthetics, JNU, both in 2012) as well as in group shows at venues including GallerySKE , Bangalore; Exhibit 320, Delhi; and Hangar Bicocca, Milan. This is the artist’s first solo show with Nature Morte.
