Get to know SqW:Lab 2018 fellows – today we speak to artist, Vishwa Shroff.
Where can you be found?
In the studio and in the kitchen.
Work in progress, Vishwa Shroff
Tell us about a creative action you have taken this week.
Started working on a 60 day sketchbook project.
What does ‘home’ mean to you?
Home is where I am, its spatiality akin to a jigsaw which changes over time, adopting me as much as I adopt it.
What was the last thing you drew?
oh so many things! Drawing plays a central role within my practice. I see them as durational dialogs between the building and those that have passed through them. The marking left behind within this process is what I have been drawing.
Tell us about 2 of your most subtle influences.
Paper Toys and Manga Backdrops… and theatre sets.
Please share your thoughts / a few words about your expectations of the SqW:Lab fellowship, of being in Mumbai and the project in total.
Durational dialogues permit narrative and mnemonic evolvement, allowing technical and theoretical exchanges that remain otherwise illusive in one’s own practice. Initiating an exchange platform therefore made sense. To come together for short periods with professionals from different fields that share a common interest in spatial observations and alterations, but come to it from a distinct point of view.
