Garden with Vikram Divecha

Ended - Wednesday 3 March 2021

Beirut-born, Mumbai-bred, Vikram Divecha is an artist based in Dubai. His practice raises questions about time, value and authorship by engaging people across urban and social spheres, and working with available material and space. Divecha terms this approach as ‘found processes’, which often sees him intervene within public and social systems. From wholesale exporters to municipal gardeners, architectural consultants to railway traffic managers, Divecha’s participants inform and shape his projects in various ways, at times for sustained durations. These attempts translate into public art, site-specific interventions, workshops, installations, moving images, paintings, surfaces, drawings, photographs, performances and text.

Divecha holds an MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University and was a participant of the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study program. Exhibitions include: Jameel Arts Center, Dubai; The Jewish Museum, NY; Wallach Art Gallery, NY; 57th Venice Biennale; 13th Sharjah Biennial; Louvre Abu Dhabi; Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde, Dubai; Alserkal Avenue, Dubai; Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw. Grants, commissions and scholarships: Sharjah Art Foundation; the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture; institut français; the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation. Residencies: Land Art Mongolia; Temporary Art Platform, Lebanon.

‘Garden’ is a workshop that will take place in the quiet neighborhood of Nad al Sheba with artist Vikram Divecha. Together with the instructor, the participants will explore Tashkeel’s garden through exercises in drawing, writing and performance that reflect on the self and our environment. The workshop sessions will include a slow, purposeful disengagement from our fast-paced lives through map-drawing, writing and performance, focusing on scents, sounds, colours, shapes and perspectives. Group readings and discussions will take place at the end of the sessions to encourage dialogue and idea-sharing with the group.
