Stolen Song/Phaneendra Nath Chaturvedi

Karin Weber Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Phaneendra Nath Chaturvedi in Hong Kong. Phaneedra is an emerging artist currently at the forefront of contemporary art in India. His large format multi-panel works feature skeletal figures with nuts and bolts which unforgivingly reveal the grotesque and dispassionate aspects of human being. The images may be stark but they nevertheless provoke viewers into re-thinking how comfortable we humans are being surrounded by superficial beauty and insincerity in contemporary society.

There will be a premiere of the documentary film 'The Metamorphosis' made by the renowned Indian art critics and curators Vinod Bhardwaj and Rohit Suri about the artist at the opening night.
