For Anna Boghiguian’s first significant showing in the UK she premieres a new commission for Iniva, A Play to Play, a group of works made at Tagore’s university, Santiniketan. A small stage populated by papier mache figures elicits Tagore’s love of theatre, accompanied by a display of drawings, photographs, sculptures, sketchbooks and embroidered fabrics.
Goshka Macuga reworks When was Modernism?(2008) an installation that evokes Kala Bhavana, the art college at Santiniketan. With stone benches arranged around a live tree, the piece echoes the outdoor campus, while a display of over thirty discarded student test pieces can be seen as fragments from a little known history of modernism.
