T. Venkanna: Looking for PeaceBy Pia Singh
Contradictory to the artists soft-spoken nature, T. Venkannas fluency in questioning the profoundest moments of lifedeath, lust, and a forthcoming series on birthmake art history Venkannas primary vocabulary. By transforming us into witnesses who must look again and again until the brutality of this world, as frightening as it is, becomes inadmissibly real, Looking for Peace is an exorcism of evil disguised in the discourse of development.
