23rd September 2017, New Delhi: Art Curator Seema Subbanna hosted An art show “Paper Towns” by Apoorva Subbanna. The show was inaugurated by Shri Rajeev Sethi, the Cultural Czar, at Alliance Francaise, Lodhi Estate. The show will continue till 26th September 2017.
Apoorva Subbanna said “Paper towns” is a term coined by John Green for towns marked on the national maps, which do not actually exit. For me another perspective of the same thing is that we are all living in paper towns. The mapped cities and their perceptive existence are both questionable. Every opinion, everything we know of it and everything we understand it to be, is transient”
The guest spotted at the event were Rajeev Sethi, Christine Storm, Prathibha Prahlad, Nupur Kundu, Aruna Bhowmick, Anand Moy bannerjee, Kavita Nayar, Mahesh Borse etc…
Seema Subbanna said at the opening ceremony, “Apoorva is a very gifted artist. Her work is youthful, joyful and vibrant. She uses various mediums to express herself. “Paper Towns” is a show dealing with the idea of ever evolving cities. There is no land pure or impure in itself, but the people living there who make it what it is. Hence, the land of our dreams is right where we are.
The key is understanding that the diversity in the country, over which there are so many differences, is not a deterrent but is actually what makes India rich and gives each place its identity. This also helps her capture the essence of the cities in visual art. For this show she has worked with the city of Varanasi, for its cultural lineage and the Mountains, for their all embracing spirit”
