UnMYthU

Chemould (Con)Temporary Museum, Mumbai

UnMYthU seeks to (un)present the artist’s practice through (un)frequented modes of engagement. The tangible manifestation of the exhibition is a byproduct of twenty years of performance. This museum exhibition is an exploration of performance of identities and the spaces of inbetweenness – especially in the context of contemporary value creation and value consumption, mythmaking as a method of identity building and the social roles we undertake and discard. Sen employs the medium of life and human experiences as the material for her performances. The resulting byproducts are physical remnants of performed identities- manifested through pre-codified cognition and sensory impulses and reactions. Sen invites visitors to co-perform and (un)myth with her, but under contractual mandatory protocol. All visitors are (un)performing with the performer(s) – together exploring the layers of their shared (con)temporary (un)realities that manifest existence(s).
