Visual arts review: Ideas formless and tangible
Hong Kong's Samson Young, promiscuous as he is in his forays into diverse disciplines, picks what can be termed collateral scraps to conjure a tenuous art of ideas, excerpts and improvisation. An art without labels and firm boundaries that seeks to trace patterns of unbidden, formless flow within an amorphous form. Goa-based Sahil Naik, on the other hand, throws up contentious questions around the firm and tangible dimensions of monuments and mausolea that buoy civilizational aspirations and boost narratives on which nation states thrive.
The light, playful tenor of Young's pluralist idiom merges strains of music and visual art and spices them up with political comments at times.
