“Drawing Room is pleased to announce a new work by Sarnath Banerjee, the third Annotations artist to create work for – and inspired by – Drawing Room’s Outset Study. Best known for his graphic novels and films that tell stories through a combination of free hand drawings and text, Banerjee has developed a new work which brings together Indian classical music and libraries.

The Many Half Lives of Vasundhara Rangarajan is an immersive installation consisting of sound and a suite of fifteen drawings. Discovering art historian Ernst Gombrich’s book ‘Meditations on a hobby horse : and other essays on the theory of art’ on the library bookshelves inspired Banerjee. Research then led him to the work of Gombrich fellow art historian Aby Warburg. A trip to the Warburg Institute in London influenced the development of Banerjee’s installation…”
