Abhishek Chaudhary is part of #TheGalleryProject. #TheGalleryProject includes artworks from 47 artists from 27 different countries. Each work reflects a unique perspective and as a whole, the exhibition series refuses to present a standardized narrative. Rather, it becomes clear that being queer means something different to each artist, whether sexually, politically, or aesthetically.
Each artist represented in the exhibition has developed their own strategies for coping with their lived realities and addressing (or not addressing) them in their art. The works displays sex, fragility, anger, courage, hope, nihilism, strength, fear, and beauty.
About the artwork:
The presented body of work, collectively titled ‘Now You Can Go Home’ is an ongoing photographic project from past three years and has been shot in different spaces that the artist identifies as ‘home’ and explores how intimate spaces become play zones of identity, performance and a creation of personal mythology.
Spanning from self-portraits to images of different subjects who perform as characters, the artist has created a story that involves the viewer as much as it engages with the themes it develops. Many of the photographs here have been exhibited at various exhibitions and were recently published in the Gaysi Zine Issue #5″.
