Galleria Continua once again has the pleasure of presenting one of the most internationally well-known Indian artists, Shilpa Gupta

During over two decades she has engaged with art in its interactive, participatory, and public dimensions. The artist has incessantly mapped the defining power of psychological and social and borders on public memory and life. Her works involve with the persistence power of repressive state apparatuses, the deceptive ideas of public consensus enabled by emerging mediascapes and the seductions of social homogeneity. Shilpa Gupta creates a visual grammar of a conceptual nature, weaves the intensity of writing through complex works: objects, photographs, drawings, performances, interactive videos. In this exhibition, the artist revisits her photographic series, "Do not See Do not Hear Do not Speak" (2006) creating a sculpture in which three figures are intertwined in a circle, each hiding the others’ mouths, ears and eyes. This work it’s a reflection on expression and freedom.Shilpa Gupta work has been acquired by important public and private collections, including the Mori Museum, the Asia Society, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Caixa Foundation, Daimler Chrysler, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, the Kramlich Collection, the Astrup Fearnley Museum, Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, Deutsche Bank, the Jerusalem Museum and the Devi Foundation.
