We are pleased to present you the work of the Indian artist Om Soorya in the lobby of the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen. Within the artist in residence program of Pro Helvetia he spent the last two months in St. Gallen. Om Soorya’s series of watercolours, «Silence-Breathless», which deals with the slavery in his country and its impact on today’s India, will be exhibited until 31 May. Presentation of work and bar: Wednesday, 6 May 2009, 6 – 8 p.m. The artist will be present.
Om Soorya’s work (*1977, India) is concerned with the history of India and especially the urbanisation of the country. The artist interweaves these topics with his own past, creating dreamlike images. His latest exhibitions took place in Shanghai (2009), New Delhi, Mumbai (2008) and New York (2007).
