PartnersThe Portret Project

The Portret Project

The Portret Project was founded in 2013 in New Delhi. It is a niche concept with a focus on portraiture as an art form and with an emphasis on its radical role in the history of art and its growth and development. Portraiture is a highly revealing aesthetic exercise. The aim of this project is to explore important questions of how the self is represented and defined as well as the means through which this commemoration takes place. The genre has widened its parameters to include diverse media and now offers an array of new possibilities and dimensions for facial and bodily representation in terms of form and content. What is it, therefore, that is desired of a contemporary portrait? A mere likeness is not enough; there must be an element of surprise, which makes use of the tool of the artist’s imagination to see past the subject’s discernable appearance towards a larger reality. Whether representing the face of the artist or another, the fundamental idea of a good portrait is to draw in the viewer and inform him or her of the subject’s essence, identity and existence.

Encouraging Young Artists

While each show will be unique in its scope and breadth and attempt to interpret portraiture it will also reiterate the amorphous state of art today. Artists – both traditional and conceptual – continue to plumb the infinite richness and variety of the genre for new means of expression and have been rewarded with a renewal of critical, curatorial and commercial interest and TPP is committed to bringing to its audience a wide range of works across media which reflect these evolving notions.
Our strategy is bold in the sense of encouraging young artists working in a variety of media to embrace portraiture and, in doing so, keeping the tradition of figuration and representation alive.

The Portret Project at Delhi Live : 5 larger than life installations using
5 different forms of art. For example – Thread Weaving, Painting etc.

Harshada Kerkar

Inspired by the notion of sibling love and bonding especially among those from weaker sections of society, Harshada Kerkar’s works are a comment on the concept of kinship: immediate, extended and societal. Executed in soft charcoals, her figures are nameless and timeless, a series of individual histories within a certain format. Incorporating the aesthetics of traditional charcoal drawings, these works are psychologically penetrating and because of their format, heighten the sense of claustrophobia and initiate suggestive narrative readings. Her technique of rubbing out areas which are an integral part of the image leave in the mind of the viewer a lingering sense of the subjects’ self assertion.

N Prasannakumar

N Prasannakumar's works are contemplative, innately personal visions which embody emotional essence. They are captivating, powerful and sometimes quite chilling. Nonetheless, many are the images by which the viewer might become aware of the falsehood behind conventions and be able to find a way back to the mysterious essence of things. The apparent simplicity of Prasannakumar’s works is clearly a suspect one. His serigraphs and mixed media works are methodical, but the surprising in them never mere vagary. What he seeks to achieve is controlled resonance without being ambiguous. They are haunting with a hint of the oppressiveness of hallucinations about them and stress the poetic image as conscious and visible, rather than symbolic or significant. These are spectacular works of dark and hypnotic power. Muted in colour but abundant in detail and imagery they are characterized by a sleekness of finish and a synchronized presentation of the commonplace and the unusual as well as of hesitation and disquiet.

Pallav S. Chander

Pallav S. Chander's works are complex both in terms of their physicality and as a thematic concern about conscious and unconscious knowledge. There is a sense of the infinite and the universal in these works which communicate limitless sensations through finite means. It is an articulation of a continuum which intimates the point of intersection in the interaction of the visible and the non-visible. They offer the viewer a means of self-discovery, awareness of the infinite and implicit rather than explicit and convey pathos and existential anxiety.

Alpesh Dave

In looking at any of Pulkit Prajapati's collages, it is clear that the individual elements which make up the image have been picked and placed for their aesthetic importance. It is entirely organic and spontaneous although the effect conveyed is that of structured pre-determination. The lucidity and unity of each piece is, thus, dependent on the nature of that piece. In reconstructing the process of creation, the viewer can enjoy not just the references of each element but also the sense of integrity in their congress within the whole. He emphasizes the craft and process of image making but nonetheless pushes the boundaries of the collage from its processes and techniques to its expressive possibilities to create intense and intricate works.
