Ones to Watch: Shudarshan Shetty

Shudarshan Shetty's large-scale sculptures are most often constructed from ordinary objects that we often take for grated. The Mumbai-based artist recently had an exhibition at The Tilton Gallery, showcasing her series of sculptural installations. Most of her work is quite conceptual and she is mostly celebrated for her presentation of mechanical installations (often animated version) of the everyday objects. Celebrated as his generation's most innovative conceptual artist in India, Shetty constructs different scenarios of the explorations to question life, death, absence and emptiness  in his recent show, The More I Die, The Lighter I'll get.

Shetty's work have been included in Contemplating the Void: Interventions in the Guggenheim Museum (the Guggenheim) as well as Indian Highway (Herning Museum of Contemporary Art), Louis Vuitton 2009 commission (Galeria de Milano), Gem Museum of Art (Hague), Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (Fukuoka) and Tate Modern (London) to name a few.
