Unseen, unheard, unexplained
March 24 – April 30, 2011
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 24, 6-8:30 pm
This first US exhibition of Mumbai born photographer PAT presents us with an overview of his work dating from 1998 onwards. Whereas his practice is based on a personal approach, it simultaneously addresses themes of identity, ambiguity and originality within a larger, historical context. Using self-portraiture, nudes or still lives, all produced with traditional photographic techniques in b/w or color, his work assumes a highly idiosyncratic position within Indian contemporary photography. His voracious collecting of historical as well as current photo books, has informed PAT's introspective search and opens it to a broader discourse.
