Exhibition Details

Only in Good Taste critically examines the visual representation of the Yamuna River in Delhi that has imprinted it in the memory as a 'polluted river'. The work consists of images created in the darkroom, narratives, research data and self-portraits seeking to go beyond the act of photography, offering a holistic approach that attempts to subvert the surface of the image and the inherited memory.

This reflexive nature seeks to challenge the one-dimensional representation of the Yamuna. Staging and collaboration become a vital part of giving an active role to the natural and human elements that make up the river's ecosystem and invite reflection on both historical and present images with sensitivity to attention. Only in Good Taste is also a commentary on the environmental crisis and an interpretation of the Anthropocene, in which the Yamuna River was an important witness.

About the Author

Kush Kukreja (India,1994) is a Delhi-based visual artist. His photographic research focuses on the aspects of fiction and nonfiction associated with images, interconnections with other art forms and the politics of representation. Using historical processes and alternative materials, he examines the complex narrative layers embedded in the fabric of the land and engages with histories of colonisation associated with the process of image-making. He received the Alkazi Theatre Photography Grant 2022, was one of the finalists in the 2022 edition of Blurring the Lines magazine, received the Generator Co-Operative Art Production Fund 2020 for the project 'Only in good taste', and was the winner of the TOTO Awards Photography 2020. His works have been exhibited at Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai (2020), Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool (2021), Miss Read Art Book Fair, Berlin (2022) and Arles Book Fair, Les Rencontres d'Arles, France (2022).
