Identity, as a concept, covers a wide gamut of subjects which can be divided into many categories and subcategories. The artists have experimented with the notion of Identity through their individual understandings and interests. ID-ENTITY, the word has been split as ID (identification) and ENTITY (individual/body/unit), giving the two words a departure and an association at the same time.
In present times, the matter of Identity is very pertinent in our country. One is facing constant interrogation regarding one’s self-identity and a need to prove it at every step with multiple tools that include the Aadhar Card, Passport, PAN Etc. For this project these young artists have created a body of works experimenting with the idea of self and identity and how they fit themselves into the society. The exhibition is an attempt to address or put forth some broad questions related to Identity by analysing how this could be interpreted in contemporary society. For example, personal identity, cultural identity, national identity, individual identity, group identity, all initiate a dialogue on how these forms are different or related through interwoven anecdotes.
