Jaishri Abichandani

The gallery AVANTHAY CONTEMPORARY is pleased to announce the invitation and participation of the artist

The artist Jaishri Abichandani, who is represented by Gallery AVANTHAY CONTEMPORARY Zurich, has been invited to show selections from her “Reconciliations” project in the Tea Pavillon at the third Guangzhou Triennial.

The series “Reconciliations” uses appropriated imagery from various international cities to create imagined utopian spaces and landscapes in order to explore and subvert historic, geographic and political boundaries. The photographs bring together disparate spaces based on real or imagined relationships – some of historic or current conflict (New York and Tokyo, Lima and Santiago, Ramallah and Jerusalem), some bound by political ideology (Havana and Pyongyang) or former colonies (Mumbai/London). The complete project has been shown in the Queens Museum of Art N.Y. until March 23rd, 2008.
