    11 December 2016 – 21 February 2017
    Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai

    Suitcase Museum is a collection of 44 objects from Dayanita Singh’s Museum of Chance (Steidl, 2015). Two suitcases make up this museum, encouraging the future form of the museum and both condensing and expanding its boundaries. In her work, Singh challenges traditional and existing concepts of photography and pushes the medium to speak through other forms like the book, the museum and the archive.

    At the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, which inspired Dayanita Singh early in her career, she appropriates the Museum’s syntax and structure, its formal as well as its ideological function to present new ways of looking at and engaging with objects.

    Dayanita Singh: A Book Story
    National Portrait Gallery, Ondaatje Wing Theatre
    Thursday 19 May 2016, 19:00
    Tickets: £8 (book online or in person)

    Dayanita Singh traces her photographic journey beginning with a book Zakir Hussain (1986), via other key projects such as Chairs (2005) and its unique dissemination methods, Sent a Letter (2007), her first ‘book as exhibition’, the FILEROOM book object (2013), and concluding with her most recent projects, the Museum of Chance (2014) and Suitcase Museum (2016).

    Publishing is a significant part of Singh’s practice: in her books, often made in collaboration with Gerhard Steidl, she experiments with alternate forms of producing and viewing photographs. Singh’s latest is the “book-object,” a work that is concurrently a book, an art object, an exhibition and a catalogue. Stemming from the artist’s interest in the poetic and narrative possibility of sequence and re-sequence, the “book-object” allows Singh to both create photographic sequence and also simultaneously disrupt it.
