Dayanita Singh: Museum Bhavan

Interviews by Aveen Sen, Gerhard Steidl.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Dayanita Singh: Museum Bhavan.'With Museum Bhavan, Dayanita Singh (born 1961) forges a new space between publishing and the museum, an experience where books have the same--if not greater--artistic value as prints hanging on a gallery wall. Consisting of 10 individual “museums” in book form, Museum Bhavan is a miniature version of Singh’s eponymous traveling exhibition, with prints placed in folding expanding wooden structures.
The images in Museum Bhavan have been intuitively grouped into lyrical chapters in a visual story such as “Little Ladies Museum” and “Ongoing Museum,” as well as more specific series such as “Museum of Machines.” As in Singh’s first project, Sent a Letter (2008), the books are housed in a handmade box and fold out into accordion-like strips which the artist encourages viewers to install and curate as they wish in their own homes. The exhibition thus becomes a book, and the book an exhibition.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Photo-Eye Blog

Adam Bell

Offering an intimate look at Singh’s life and concerns, Museum Bhavan is a private museum made public, reflecting not only Singh’s attempts to make sense of her work and expansive archive, but also offering a poetic meditation on the medium and its rich possibilities to order and construct meaning from the past and the world around us.

Huffington Post India

Somak Ghoshal

Museum Bhavan . . . dispenses with specificities . . . it stirs the eye into thought, instead of letting it become fixated on the particulars depicted within each frame.
