Monnaie de Paris - Subodh Gupta exhibition
Monnaie de Paris presents « Adda / Rendez-vous », the first retrospective exhibition in France of internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, Subodh Gupta. The exhibition runs till 26 August 2018 and showcases the diversity of the artist’s work as well as the variety of materials he uses, including his famous installations of stainless steel cookware, or his sculptures of metal molded objects.
The artist’s work is characterized by a constant exploration of the presence of rituals and spirituality in our daily lives, reflecting not only on personal and community practices, but also on how often certain objects and intimate experiences, apparently insignificant, lead to another dimension; the cosmos.

Gupta (b. 1964) lives and works in Delhi and had trained as a painter before going on to work with a variety of media including painting, performance, video, photography, sculpture, and installation. Subodh Gupta sees the exhibition as a place for meetings, rendezvous that would trigger discussions, exchanges and debates just like the hindi concept «Adda».
