RANJANI SHETTAR Seven ponds and a few raindrops @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY


RANJANI SHETTAR Seven ponds and a few raindrops @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY March 12 - August 12, 2018 Indian sculptor Ranjani Shettar (b. 1977) combines natural and industrial materials—such as beeswax, wood, organic dyes, vegetal pastes, lacquer, steel, and cloth—in her large-scale installations. Typically composed of numerous non-representational forms, Shettar's immersive environments are inspired by her observations of the now-threatened natural environs of rural India. For Seven ponds and a few raindrops (2017), the artist molded pieces of stainless steel into a series of sensual, curved, amoebic, shape-shifting elements that have been covered in tamarind-stained muslin. Suspended from the ceiling, the work seems to defy gravity, casting a series of mesmerizing shadows, which, from a distance, evoke the sense of having stumbled upon a surreal, hidden-away oasis.
