About The Exhibition:

We eagerly wait for the newspapers every morning. We binge on it, even before we touch our breakfasts. We glue ourselves to TVs, eagerly listening and watching breaking news, even before our dinners. We entertain and suffer arguments, abuses, fistfights, murders, terrorists' acts and extremist threats. For us scams and scamsters are no more a worrisome topic. They are entertainment. Tens of crores of loot is petty news, hundred plus is interesting and thousands of Crores is exciting. In short, We drink News, eat News and breathe News. Then what?

Do we only excrete the NEWS as it is?

Are we only a NEWS obsessed society that eats it, only to pass it out, unregistered and unaffected?

About The Artist:

Sivakesav Rao Kandru, born on 22nd June, 1954, in Guntur, grew up in Paddivari palem, Andhra Pradesh. He came to Hyderabad to study art at College of Fine Arts & Architecture, JNTU in 1974. He went to Baroda for a post-graduate diploma in Graphics in 1980. Other than painting and printmaking, Kesav is a specialist in natural dyeing and hand-block printing.

His first solo exhibition was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in January 2005 and Hyderabad in 2008 and 2009 His subsequent exhibitions include "Freedom is not Free" - a collection of abstract works and "Bapu - On the Serrated Road", an homage to Mahatma Gandhi, which was a travelling exhibition of a staggering 160 portraits and depictions of Gandhi at all stages of his life. His last exhibition, aptly titles "Demo-cry", saw his focus on the unmitigated misery of the common man in India.

This, his latest series, is a vague follow-on from his last, and deals with the daily downpour of news and media that the public is doused in, until it desensitizes us by sensationalizing even the most heinous and deplorable events and incidents.
