PARIS.- Monnaie de Paris presents « Adda / Rendez-vous», the first retrospective exhibition in France of internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, Subodh Gupta. Gupta (b. 1964) lives and works in Delhi and had trained as a painter before going on to work with a variety of media including painting, performance, video, photography, sculpture, and installation. Subodh Gupta sees the exhibition as a place for meetings, rendezvous that would trigger discussions, exchanges and debates just like the indhi concept «Adda». Showcasing the diversity of Subodh Gupta’s practice, the exhibition features iconic sculptures using stainless steels pots and pans, such as Very Hungry God (2006), for which Gupta is best known and cast found objects, such as Two Cows (2003), alongside very new works, like Unknown Treasure (2017) and the video titled Seven Billion Light Years (2016).[More]
