Dayanita Singh's showcase at Art Houz during Chennai Photo Biennale 2019. ‘Master Jee’ is a collaboration with choreographer Mark Morris. These images of Saroj Khan, the legendary Bollywood dance choreographer, were made in the early 90s. The images were so sumptuous, Dayanita was never sure what form they should take. When Mark Morris was curating the White Light Festival in 2016, he asked for a work to go into the exhibition. That is when Dayanita, sent him all the images of Saroj Khan and asked him to pace and sequence them to the music of his choosing.
