FILE ROOM: the Book is my Work
For her exhibition at Kriti Gallery, the artist/photographer/bookmaker, Dayanita Singh, will build a special museum for her File Room book (Steidl, 2013).
The File Room book museum is another step following Museum Bhavan, which Dayanita inaugurated at the Hayward Gallery in 2013. Alongside this museum, she will display a special edition of 33 File Room books (The Varanasi Edition) in the special structures she developed for the Venice Biennale 2013, where she represented Germany.
Singh has, for many years, insisted that the book is her form, especially since she published Sent a Letter, and her book museum is the culmination of that very thought.
Kriti Gallery first presented her seminal exhibition, Go Away Closer, in 2007.
Dayanita Singh lives in New Delhi. She is the author of ten books and numerous exhibitions worldwide.
Artist Reception : 3rd Feb 2014, 4 to 7 p.m.
