Being & Sense

Artist Talk

Akbar Padamsee at the JNAF

Being & Sense

In this talk, Rohit Goel explores the philosophical leanings in Akbar Padamsee's work.


He presents an argument about Akbar Padamsee's artwork on display amidst the exhibition at the Jehangir Nicholson Art Foundation, Akbar Padamsee: A Tribute.

Building on a reading of Padamsee's existentialism - his work as depiction of 'being-in-itself' - Rohit sees Padamsee's oeuvre as an ongoing struggle to find a position between existence and thought, a painstaking search for a medium of 'being' and 'sense'.
