Pouring Water on a Drowning Man

Sept 28-Nov 18 2017

Opening Reception: September 28 7:30PM
Lunch and Look artist-led tour: September 29, Noon

Divya Mehra works in sculpture, print, drawing, book making, installation, and advertising to addresses the long-term effects of colonization and institutional racism. Re-contextualizing references found in hip-hop culture, literature, and current affairs, she exposes racism and discomfort implicit in the language that often frames the rhetoric and construction of diversity. In Pouring Water on a Drowning Man, allusions to trauma, isolation and death are transformed into darkly humorous visual cues, made up of sculptural and text-based work. Exploring issues of diasporic identities, racialization, otherness, and the construct of diversity, Mehra's work explores a dialogue and discourse limited only by our apprehension to perceived difference, and our hyper-willingness to have it immediately labelled and classified.
