“There’s something about black. You feel hidden away in it.”
– Georgia O’Keeffe
An immersion in darkness, or a negation of light, Noir is an exploration of ‘blackness’ as both material and method in artistic production.
Derived from the genre ‘noir’: most widely associated with stylish Hollywood crime dramas and literature of the 1940s and 50s, the exhibition is fittingly inspired by an urban environment marked by oblique and vertical lines, neon signs and shadowy dark alleys. Amidst the shadows, Chetnaa’s art attempts to draw out the changing nature of spatial and temporal structures in today’s world.
