PRASANTA SAHU

Born 1968, Orissa, after completing his Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Orissa, pursued his BFA in painting from Kala Bhavana, Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan and MFA in painting from M.S. University, Baroda. His scholarships include Eastern Print Biennale Award 1995, National scholarship from Ministry of Human Resource and Development, in 1996-98, Nasreen Mohamedi Award in 1999, M.S. University Gold Medal in 2000. SAHU tries to execute things as they appear in reality, and give them a different meaning altogether by juxtaposing images from dissimilar areas. His practice could be viewed as re-constructions and investigation of events. In his ongoing series Sahu examines the ‘unknown multitudes’ that serve the society in many different ways for the fulfillment of basic human needs and daily survival, but themselves are never recognised for their contribution. Sahu’s works intervene into these areas and expose situations and faces which are unrecognised and marginalised yet are important for the fabrication of contemporary society. Sahu’s process starts with photo documentation and interviews which later he reworks in his studio. The intention is not to repeat the reality rather to juxtapose these data in a contextual way; in his works, photographed and scanned images appear alongside re-created situations. Irrespective of the fact that Sahu works in several different medium, investigation into the human condition is the thread of commonality running through his métier. Sahu has participated in numerous prestigious shows in India and abroad. To name a few : “Lockdown Diaries” an online group exhibition at CIMA art gallery, Kolkata-2020 / “Art: Bengal Now”, a group show of Bengal Contemporary artists, Curated by Pranab Ranjan Ray, Jointly organized by Gandhara art Gallery, Kolkata and Dhoomimal art Gallery, New Delhi, at Dhoomimal art Gallery, New Delhi-2020 / “Anthology of Anecdotes”, a group show at ganges art gallery, Kolkata-2019 / “Kursi” a group exhibition of Sculptures, Paintings and Installations at Sarjan art Gallery, Baroda, curated by Sandhya Bordeweker-2019/ “Blue India” a group exhibition curated by Insang Song, for Art Asia art Fair-2018, at Kintex Convention Center in Korea, from 22nd to 25th November-2018 / “Text as Text, Part-II”, a group exhibition at gallery Art and Soul, Mumbai, Curated by Subhalaxmi Sukla-2018 / “Constellations” – a group exhibition at Bihar Museum, Patna, Bihar-2018 /“Written on Water” a group exhibition at Gallery Beyond, Mumbai-2018 / “ PART/TRAP” a group show of eleven contemporary artists at Gallery Ragini, New Delhi, Curated by Anoop Kamath-2018 / “ Response” a new-media and installation show at Gems Cinema (an abandoned cinema hall) , Organized by CIMA art gallery, Kolkata; Curated by Rakhi Sarkar-2018 / “ Artists Postcards” at Busan International art Fair, Bexco,Busan,Korea,7th to 11th December 2017, Curated by Artists Center, Mumbai-2017 / “Exhibition of works done at National Artists’ Camp”-with a group of 16 young contemporary artists, Organised by Karnataka Chitrakala Parisath, Bangalore-2017 /Daegu-India Fine arts Exchange Exhibition at ICCR, at Daegu arts centre, 13, exhibition hall, organized by Korean Fine Arts Association in Daegu Branch, South Korea-2017 / - “Project Tihar”- an exhibition of Painting, Drawing, Print, Sculpture, Video and Installation created during a collaborative project with the inmates of Tihar , at Lalit Kala Academy Rabindra Bhavan, New Delhi.
