Experimenter presents Under the Crust a solo exhibition by Prabhakar Pachpute for Edition 5 of In Touch.
Through a new series of works, Prabhakar Pachpute continues his inquiry about exploitation of land and mineral resources, depicting an ominous future of a post-mined and post-industrial landscape. He uses personal experiences, research and folklore, represented by characters in his paintings, drawings, animations and sculptures, that confront, subvert, or even succumb to the pressures of economy and capital on land. His works on view propose as much a state of disarray as they indicate a chance of optimism. A precarious visual equilibrium emerges to indicate a time that is at the precipice of change. Pachpute proposes a possible afterlife of objects and people who inhabit the landscape today, where an alternate legacy exists or even calls to action for revolution. Prabhakar Pachpute lives and works in Pune.
