Loss of art is a loss of history, a loss of spirit of time. A progeny of the society that gestated it, an artwork embodies a past and a history in itself. It therefore survives as a filial relic of the parent civilization, fossilized in time yet fresh as a Mayflower. Yet art itself is far from immortal. Its preservation and salvation has always been a battle against nature, time—and, man. Kumar will discuss his latest work, that rhetorically raises concerns regarding methods of documentation, archiving, curation and preservation in the “Post-Post” society; a society that is often mediated through the plastic pixels of the computer screen.
