In Context – Jigsaw Artists Collective
In Context brings together Jigsaw, four artists from India and the UK who are described as “four humans living and constantly moving at quite a distance in time, space and life at large”.
Individually they produce art work in a jumble of genres; drawings, prints, archives, collages, poems and texts. The artists interpret the theme of ‘puzzle poems’ to create a new collective dialogue, a game of change and the unexpected.
Kavitha Bakakrishnan – Art critic, poet, contemporary art researcher, painter and art curator.
Kuzhur Wilson – Poet and art curator who has created the Temple of Poetry in Kerala, India.
Hilary Dehn – Photographer and digital artist who works in a variety of media.
Charlie Holt – Painter, printmaker and collage artist living and working in England and Portugal.
Collectively they have recently exhibited at the Merz Barn in Cumbria, Manchester
Metropolitan University, Loafers Art Cafe in Fort Kochi in Kerala and at a Poetry Festival in Pattambi in Kerala.
