We hoped that this work would "Rest the brain or rather the imagination, to
her credit the work does neither"

*Nikhil Raunak (b. 1988) *completed his graduation and masters in painting
and printmaking from Sir JJ School of Art, Bombay in 2013, combining
various mediums, and continuously challenging the boundaries between
printmaking, sculpture, installation, painting, video and performative

He initially stepped out of the 2-dimensional expectations of a painting or
print, by using elements of origami. Later, he turned his prints into
free-standing sculptures with the help of wax molds. He has rendered
portraiture theatrical by building symbolically on situations in art
history and biography - a theme that runs through much of his college
writing, which has been consistently outstanding.

Select group exhibitions in 2012-13 include, ‘Arranging chairs for Ai
Weiwei’ 2012, ‘Shunya’ 2012, ‘I C U JEST’ at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale
2012, ‘L’exigence de la saudade’ at Kadist Art Foundation Paris 2013, and
the ‘IInd Transnational Pavillion’ at the 55th Venice Biennale 2013. Nikhil
Raunak has been associated with Clark House Initiative since its inception
and together with other artists founded the Shunya Collective in 2011. This
is his first solo exhibition.

Nikhil Raunak lives and works in Bombay.

*Clark House Initiative* is a curatorial collaborative and a union of
artists based in Bombay.
