 ‘Handle With Care’, at Method Kalaghoda

‘Handle With Care’, at Method Kalaghoda

Into the light

A new exhibition, ‘Handle With Care’, at Method Kalaghoda is presenting a series of light sculptures, grills and furniture made using industrial and metal glass. The works by Yaazd Contractor present a contrasting relationship of materials within each object: cinder and glass, mass-produced prefabricated steel parts and the nearly-extinct art of cold cathode neon, and more. “Method invites the viewer to approach the show not with the perspective of an outsider looking in, doing their best to extract and impose some foreign meaning to the show, but to take on the challenge of looking at the exhibition precisely as the show title suggests: with care,” states the curatorial note. ‘Handle With Care’ can be viewed at Method Kalaghoda, Mumbai, till 3 January 2023, 11 am to 6 pm, (closed on Monday)
