ˈbīˌōm / बायोम

Artists Arun Kumar, Dheeraj Londe and Rai focused their subject matter on a specific place, exploring practices, materials and people that make up the ecology of it. Through keen observation, each of them found ways to commemorate their experience of the place. Whether it be the fading of a generational practice, the onslaught of tourism in a hilly place, or the incessant cycle of construction. They have a unique lens on the hypocrisies of “development” that considers the environmental and social implications on the ecology as time goes by. For this open studio, we invite you to share their interrogation, memories, and concerns for the spaces we occupy. 


The residency offered a time and space to get into the nitty-gritty of photo printing. A very slow process that demanded iteration and patience allowing the residence to gain perspective and observe what they had captured through their lenses.
