[Project]NanoResidency (a project at dis-locate in Tokyo, Japan) invited artists to perform in public toilets to respond to the spaces with performances of gestures and sketches. Toilets are seen as outer spaces, and also outer-space. These performances were statements commenting on the insufficient space for art in our cities and also as a radical kind of space-creation.

[Project] A project on the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA)’s Facebook page. A script that can deny its own existence easily is possible. The continuity can be said to exist only in the minds who engage over time and let their mind be influenced and subjected to. It does not exist in any discernible form otherwise. The script exists in the audience’s mind only. The audience can become a part of the production anytime. Link: View
