Anahita Taneja, Director, Shrine Empire was present to address the media. This exhibition was a freehand exploration of how art affects and is affected by the processes of collective, personal and historical memory. Memory has for long been an elusive area of study for neuroscience. The inadequacy of science in capturing an intimately human experience is highlighted by the efficacy with which art was able to delve into phenomenological realms to lend memory and its erasure an accessible vocabulary.
