Thukral & Tagra. SOMNIUM SEMINIBUS II.

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to present Indian artists Thukral & Tagra’s first solo show in Switzerland, SOMNIUM SEMINIBUS II. The exhibition brings the public into a particular atmosphere, illustrating a wide variety of plant species, while the Artists explore the coexistence of elements in nature, raising questions and curiosity on their origins and the past. A past which is manicured by folklore and natural progression. The ways of seeing them can be challenged and a walk along this one route is what the Artists intend to narrate. This in no meant to be a biological approach or study of species; it juxtaposes the elements which have been inherited and stay together.
