Announced: Asha Ganpat “President of the knife club” Closing exhibit talk @ Index Art Center

PRESIDENT OF THE KNIFE CLUB Closing gallery talk on Thursday February 1st at 7pm.
Asha Ganpat will be holding an Artist Talk and Closing Reception for her solo exhibit ‘President of the Knife Club’ this Thursday, Feb 1, 6 to 9 PM.

Works by Asha Ganpat A selection of carved objects, new and old. In addition to the carvings, Asha Ganpat presents a series of sharpened everyday objects and knife works. Ganpat’s work opens a discourse about our species’ inclinations to weaponize the world around us. Her process is a reassignment of that violent nature, and frees ourselves by imposing the blame onto these questionably external things. In this endeavor, Ganpat asserts herself as the President of The Knife Club, in the business of fulfilling the market’s cutting and slashing and stabbing needs.
