KHOJ International Artists' Association

In June 2005 the KHOJ International Artists’ Workshop was held in Mumbai at the Jindal Vijaynagar Steel Ltd, Vasind. Acclaimed international artists came together from Bangladesh, South Korea, Germany, Pakistan, Turkey, Sri Lanka, France, UK, Barbados and South Africa to work alongside prominent Indian artists from from Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, Cochin and Kolkatta. The group worked intensively for 2 weeks activating their immediate space and pushing their practices through responding to the physical space. Narrating an encounter with Prajakta Potnis’s installation in her critic’s note for Khoj Mumbai, Nancy states: “Turning the corner, you found that the white guesthouse walls had grown frills. Walls camouflaged as curtains: Prajakta Potnis' handiwork. Potnis explores the archaeology of objects in her paintings, in which a hair-band deepens into a well and a hair-clip can bite you without drawing blood. She creates a delicate frisson between object and surface; in her work at Khoj, she extended her practice beyond the canvas for the first time.”
