A CORNER TO BEHOLD by SPRYK
The human eye is naturally trained to look at things a certain way, but this can be altered by teaching your brain to see differently.
The idea is to take an everyday object and use it as a medium to explore spatial perception, depth and the difference between seeing
with your eyes and seeing with your brain. The objective is to leave the viewer with an insight on how we can train ourselves to look
at simple objects under a new light.
This installation will be up for the opening night only.
Spryk is the electronic music & art exploration of Mumbai based Tejas Nair. He presents a vast body of work that ranges from a unique brand of bass music releases to forays into the world of electronic art & installations.
A signature blend of genres in his DJ sets have brought him to play alongside the likes of UK grime legend Swindle, Portuguese beat maker Holly & at some of the finest venues pushing Electronic Music in India.
In 2016 Spryk released his debut EP "Slow Fast" on the New York based Label, High Chai Recordings, a long time flag bearer for independent Indian Electronica across the globe. These sounds were subsequently supported by heavyweights Outlook & Dimensions Festivals in Croatia alongside others.

From the time I began making art, my work has grown out of my lived experience. I investigate my experiences, seeking their histories and structures. I try to connect these personal qualities to the larger experience of the audience. I use a variety of techniques and mediums informed by the concept of each work. I love humour and use it to engage with history, politics, economics and popular culture. My work consciously follows the questions and scenarios that arise through its making. Public, private, personal and mass Histories are my subject matter. History helps me understand the present.
