Serial Pursuits: David Mabb, Dayanita Singh, Manisha Parekh, Audiobombing Crew at Nature Morte
David Mabb, Construct 30 Morris (Dearle), Sweet Briar / Stepanova, Untitled textile design, 2006, Paint on wallpaper mounted on canvas, 54,60 x 54,50 cm / 21.5” x 21.5”.

BERLIN.- Nature Morte announces "Serial Pursuits," a group exhibition in which recent works in various media by David Mabb, Manisha Parekh, Dayanita Singh and Audiobombing Crew will be brought together to present an exploration of art works created as sets or in sequences.

The highlight of the opening night will be a performance by Audiobombing Crew. Founded by Markus Zull and Stephan Ebersthäuser in 2003, the sound art collective creates serial sound loops, which are collaged together from analogue sources. The duo works with technical defects and their dynamic manipulation. By mixing Indian pop songs sourced from Bollywood musicals and spoken audio materials, the artists develop sound loops whose repetitive nature resembles the tone of ancient mantras. Audiobombing Crew live and work in Pfaffenhofen in Southern Germany. They have performed in venues such as the Kölner Philharmonie, the Schauspielhaus Düsseldorf and at Gasteig München.

In David Mabb’s works, "Rhythm 69" and "Two Squares," various wallpaper and fabric designs of William Morris are spliced together with the avant-garde art of El Lissitzky and Hans Richter. Presented as paintings arranged in formalist grids which mimic the regulative practices of industrial production, Mabb’s smash-ups of the now haute-bourgeois decorative motifs and the once radical but now sentimentalized utopian experiments are steeped in the irony implicit in negotiating a politicized art practice today. David Mabb (b.1959) lives and works in London. He has exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions at venues such as the Liverpool Biennial, the Delaware Centre for the Contemporary Arts, Leo Kamen Gallery in Toronto, the CIMA Gallery in Calcutta and the British Council in New Delhi.

Dayanita Singh's work "Museum of Innocence (The Madras Chapter)" is a photographic portrait of the MGR Memorial House in Chennai, India. The former private residence of M.G. Ramachandran is now a museum that commemorates the beloved Tamil actor and politician, where his personal belongings are displayed as relics. Singh uses the camera’s special ability to capture loss to create the memory of a memory held up by a lattice of formal repetition. Dayanita Singh (b. 1960) lives and works in New Delhi. Her work was included in the exhibition Illuminazione at this year’s Venice Biennale and she has held numerous solo exhibitions in prestigious venues such as the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum in Berlin, the Isabella Stewart Gardiner Museum in Boston, Recontres Arles in France, Frith Street Gallery in London, Fondacion Mapfre in Madrid, and Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo.

In Manisha Parekh’s new gouache paintings and graphite drawings on paper, her imagery is bio-morphic and seemingly automatic. Successive images build into a canon of identity and cultural inheritance, both Indian and international. Manisha Parekh (b. 1964) lives and works in New Delhi. Solo exhibitions of her works have been presented at Nature Morte, New Delhi; BodhiArt, New York; Berkeley Square Gallery, London; Sakshi Gallery, Mumbai; The British Council, New Delhi; and The Foundation for Indian Art, Amsterdam.
