The exhibition “Spice Box and Other Voids” at Palette features the works of three artists – Harmeet Rattan, Ramachandran, and Yuvan – each offering unique interpretations of contemporary society.
The exhibition explores the complexities of the human experience in today’s hyper-digital world, raising profound questions about the personas we adopt in this digital age.
The exhibition, which transforms the humble spice box into a symbol of separation, unity, containment, and protection, illustrates how diverse individuals contribute to the richness and character of our society.
The exhibition will be open to the public at Palette Art Gallery from September 6th to October 12th, offering everyone the opportunity to engage with this captivating exploration of the human experience.
Responding to the fact that why one should read the book, Dr. Nirmal Bhattacharya, editorial director of Niyogi Books, said there are four big reasons. The first is that there is a wealth of information about history and geopolitics. The second reason is the message that love prevails, the third is the correct description of time, and the fourth and last is the creative writing of the author.
Ms. Joyeeta Basu, journalist and editor of The Sunday Guardian, first talked about the writer, saying that “she is a keen observer of history and not dry history, but she pours her soul into her writing, which elevates history to the status of literature.”
Then, Ms. Basu moved on to talk about a book about how history unfolded before your eyes, covering the Bengal Renaissance, the Sepoy Mutiny, and the unrest in Afghanistan.
Though it’s a love story, there is nothing mundane about it, as the conversion between the protagonists is very intellectually rich.
