The sole exhibition “Meat Markets and Spirit Houses” by a mixed-media artist Monali Meher open at Lumen Travo Gallery in Amsterdam from April 6th to May 18th, 2013.

Monali Meher presents a sensitive and contemplative blend of video and mixed media works. She combines experiences and emotions, old and new in order to give the viewer a sense of what it means to be familiar but at the same time distant. She renders the collected materials and reshapes the memory from residencies in Karachi, Pakistan and in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Throughout the collection of works, Meher observes, assimilates and reflects in order to identify with her new surroundings as an Indian artist based in Europe, yet very much present in Chiang Mai or Karachi. Performative and ritualistic moments in the markets, houses, open spaces, nature and cultures become mystical encounters perceived from vivid perspective.
