Jiten Thukral (b.1976) and Sumir Tagra (b.1979) work collaboratively with a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, installations, interactive games, video, performance, and design. Always exploring new formats of public engagement, they attempt to expand the scope of what art can do. Further emphasizing what their practice can achieve in a virtual context through their archives and publications, they break out of the mediated-disciplinary world to create multi-modal sensory and immersive storytelling environments.
Their earlier works dealt with tropes of migration, mythological narratives, symbols of Indian identity, and motifs of a globally manifested consumer culture that enliven a largely pedantic and static area of cultural material. From a pop visual character to a predominantly abstract visual approach and compositional philosophy, Thukral & Tagra constantly shift in terms of their grammar and vocabulary. They have offered sociopolitical commentary that is implicit in their aesthetic for the past eighteen years.
Recently, they are seeking to identify the practice as pedagogy through their collaborative, Pollinator.io – Interdisciplinary lab, which cultivates an inclusive learning ecosystem that indexes to achieve knowledge sharing through cross-pollination.
Based in Gurgaon, these artists have exhibited their works in some of the most renowned galleries and institutions across the world including MMAG Foundation For Arts & Culture, Jordan (2020); Warehouse421, Abu Dhabi (2020); Nature Morte, New Delhi (2019); Yorkshire Sculpture Park, U.K (2019); Art Gallery Of Alberta, Canada (2018); The Manchester Museum, Manchester (2016); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2011); Maxxi Museum, Rome (2011); Yerba Buena Center For The Arts, San Francisco (2011); Arario Gallery, Seoul (2010); and Ullens Center For Contemporary Art, Beijing (2010), among many others.
