"Falling and Images from the Sustenance Series by Neeta Madahar"
2005-06-01 until 2005-07-09
Institute of International Visual Arts
London, , UK

inIVA (Institute of International Visual Arts) presents the premiere of Falling and images from the Sustenance series by Neeta Madahar. These works, which explore the beauty and unexpected drama found in nature and the familiar surroundings of home, will be shown at inIVA, London, EC2 from 1 June Ė 9 July 2005. Madaharís new film Falling reflects on the dream-like temporality of nature and memory. Sycamore seeds tumble slowly toward the viewer in a dramatic moment that echoes naturally occurring phenomena, while at the same time revealing itself to be highly orchestrated. Fabrica, Photoworks and inIVA have jointly commissioned Falling and it is Madaharís first film.

Working from her former residence in Massachusetts, Madahar spent eighteen months patiently photographing the birds and squirrels that gathered at her balcony to create the Sustenance series.† The series chronicles fluctuating moments in time, capturing changing seasons as well as daily domestic activities.

In both works, Madahar represents the physical world in unusual ways enabling the viewer to immerse themselves in stillness and intimate details. Ordinary scenes are exposed in crystalline detail, albeit in a strangely altered, exaggerated form.

During 2004, Madahar was selected for the Recontres d' Arles Photography Festival, France and exhibits at Purdy Hicks Gallery, London and Howard Yezerski Gallery, Boston. Her work has appeared in group shows in New York, Berlin and Barcelona.

Neeta Madahar is part of inIVAís Atlas season of exhibitions and events that map ideas and experiences largely drawn from uncharted territory. inIVA is considered to be the venture capitalist of the contemporary visual arts world - investing in culturally diverse artists and cutting edge ideas. inIVA produces an important programme of exhibitions, educational events, multimedia projects and publications.
