On view through January 5, 2020, Grounds For Sculpture presents the work of multinational conceptual artist, Tallur L.N. in his most significant US exhibition to date. Filling two multi-level galleries, Interference Fringe | TALLUR L.N. features the artist’s unique methodologies (3-D scanning, termites) and materials (carved stone and wood, appropriated industrial machines) creating works that reference cultural symbols and mythology while obscuring, transforming, and subverting the traditional readings of these symbols.
The exhibition includes the premiere of an important new work and the exhibition’s partial namesake, Fringe (2019), a towering 18’-tall site-specific installation inspired by historic Indian temple fragments in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Also on view is the debut of a video work, Interference (2019), inaugurating Tallur’s use of film as an artistic medium. This mesmerizing slow-motion video captures smoke-like plumes of dust being beaten out of a historic rug from the collection of the Junagadh Museum in Gujarat, India, revealing its intricate pattern.
Tallur splits his time between his familial home in coastal India and an urban-industrial city in South Korea. His work acknowledges the complexity of the global world we live in and creates dynamic tension between the past and present while provoking questions about the future.
