The first talk of this series took place on 25th September 2020 at 6:00 pm IST between Prajakta Potnis and Nancy Adajania

Prajakta Potnis and Nancy Adajania reflect on Potnis’ ongoing exhibition, ‘A Body Without Organs’ which opened just before the lockdown. A dark foreboding of how the body has been rendered vulnerable by the toxic circulations of late capitalism, this exhibition gives us the opportunity to think about the somatic and ecological implications of our self-poisoned environments. It invites us into the slow dance between the processes of immanence and imminence, disclosing afflictions brewing within the body and the world as they erupt. Criss-crossing the disciplines of painting, photography, theatre and film, Potnis and Adajania, will delve into the elements that have given birth to these works – light, fire, air, water – as well as trauma and reverie.
