The Empty Gallery is proud to present ‘Ancestor Bone Hug’, Indian-American artist Amit Desai’s second solo show at The Empty Gallery. Inspired by the Hindu ritual “Kapala Kriya”, during which the son smashes his deceased father’s skull to release his soul from human bondage, this exhibition is a celebration of the great dance of space and time. “Sculptures of the invisible, the sound of space between the stars, the sound of grass growing, the sound of dreaming, the effect of things we cannot hear are everywhere”.

For this exhibition, Desai has ventured beyond his preferred medium of photography to create a suite of thematically interconnected works including floating silk installations, a specially commissioned erotic film shot live in the gallery, and large-format Palladium prints of human skull fragments. This entirely monochromatic body of work is a natural fit for TEG’s unique exhibition space.
