Elisabetta Marabotto announces the forthcoming retrospective exhibition of Dayanita Singh at Hayward Gallery, London
London: Hayward Gallery from October 8 will host the first UK retrospective of the internationally acclaimed photographer Dayanita Singh.
The exhibition will include works produced in the past several decades as well as recent images which have never been exhibited before. “Go Away Closer” celebrates Singh’s oeuvre which examines and challenges the boundaries and usage of photography as an artistic practice.
“Singh brings her portable ‘museums’ of stories, themes and image repertoires to Hayward Gallery for the first time. These large wooden structures can be placed and opened in different ways, each holding about a hundred images. Old and new pictures are endlessly displayed, sequenced, edited and archived into the continually-evolving ‘museums’.”
Among the works on display feature some of Singh’s early works such as “Dream Villa”, “Blue Book”, “I am as I am”, “Bombay Portraits” and “Mona and Myself”.
