Jehangir Art Gallery from September 27 to October 3, 2022. Titled : The Brown Age - by Bandana Jain

 What is depression, a psychological desire to be better, to be stronger, to reflect on where we’ve made mistakes, and to find ways to improve ourselves?

Bandana Jain

Depression can ignite inspiration! In this artwork Restoration of Humanity, the artist tries to show a work in progress of a human soul, who is persistently operating on itself to restore its mental sanity. A work in progress shows the vulnerability of the individual, his low mood swings, trying to cope up with the world.

Centre of universe:

The artist tries to capture the unconditional and tender motherly love by portraying a heavenly droplet of water to the pear shaped womb of a pregnant woman. The sculpture beautifully emphasises on how a tiny human life becomes the centre of the universe for a mother. A carved map beautifully captures a firm foundation of emotional intimacy and the pure affection a mother tends to have for her child, ultimately making her the centre of the world.

About the Art Show:

Bandana is presenting her works — inspired by the omnipresence of brown corrugated containers in our lives and crafted out of discarded delivery boxes and packaging — at the prestigious Jehangir Art Gallery from September 27 to October 3, 2022. Titled The Brown Age, the solo exhibition of around 20 works of art seeks to mirror a new era through the digital revolution where brown boxes became a part of almost everything we consume and create. For Bandana, her love for the concept of sustainability is evident in the choice of her unconventional medium. By compiling discarded boxes and giving them a new lease of life through upcycling and the prism of art, she advocates that the wheels of time are turning again — and after the time periods of the Stone Age, Copper Age and Iron Age — once again heralding a new era for good and for bad. Bandana calls it the Brown Age.
