Performance art is a hybrid that combines many media.
While encompassing diverse styles and media, a constantly recurring element in performance art is the body - in its various states of being.
This exhibition sets forth two propositions of performance: the first as seen in the work of Ein Lall and Anusha Lall, a seamless transition between live performance, interactivity and recorded media; the second, as in Sonia Khuranas works, where the ephermereality of the body in performance is captured through recorded media whereby something akin to performance emerges.
Inside : In : Performance February 10th and 11th, 2006 6-9pm
And Turning : 4 channel video installation and performance20 mints.
Image, music, text and performance coalesce to create metaphors of invasion. While footage drawn from a variety of sources juxtapose the fantasies and fictions with the reality of war, the performers' body becomes the site for relentless replays of confrontation and collapse.

Inside In by Anusha Lall, single channel interactive video , 10 mins,
Similarly , Inside In by Anusha Lall, negotiates this fine line between the interior space and the exterior space , between private and public and between viewing and being viewed; as the observer is unexpectedly sucked into the piece, he or she is acutely aware of his or her own altered status in the installation

Many Lives February 10th and 11th,,6-9pm and February 18th and 19th,1pm- 9pm 2006.
Many lives by Sonia Khurana, video installations and single channel video .
A set of video installations and single channel video, Many lives is predicated on the idea of the self as a site of phenomenological interaction ; through this, Sonia explores the tension between the different forces: social and cultural, lofty and libidinal. Be it the wrap-around
narratives of large projections of moving, or close-up portraits of personal neurosis and
feminist criticism , the carthartic self-analysis and visceral engagement with viewers are evidence of the direct connection of the performative.
