Para Site is delighted to be a collaborator in the exhibition ‘GARDEN OF TEN SEASONS‘ at SAVVY Contemporary in Berlin, curated by Cosmin Costinaș, Sheelasha Rajbhandari, and Hit Man Gurung. The exhibition rakes, waters, and nurtures the questions and seedlings that have composed Kathmandu Triennale 2077 which was held in Nepal’s capital earlier this year, as well as its precursor ‘Garden of Six Seasons’ held in 2020 at Para Site in Hong Kong.
Working from within different cosmologies, when imagining the future of the 21st century, from politics to technology, we are also asking: Can we imagine art to remain a singular system, with a universal claim and a unified aesthetic? As we attempt to find solutions for the dilemmas of plurality in our troubled world, could art as a coherent concept even survive? And should it?
This project is a collaboration between Kathmandu Triennale, SAVVY Contemporary, Para Site, and Siddhartha Arts Foundation. It is generously supported by the Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation, with additional support by the Wellington and Virginia Sun Yee Trust. Some of the flights were supported by Turkish Airlines and Goethe Institute Mumbai. Special thanks to Jagdish Moktan, Katherina Michaels, Matina Maharjan, and Shreeti Prajapati.
