FORGET GOLD – INVEST IN WATER. This exhibition was selected for the Chennai Photo Biennale 2019. The exhibition; subtitled ‘Photography as a Method of Visual Research, was originally devised as a project for Photography students at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology by Allan Parker assisted by Chinar Shah. An earlier version of the show was presented at the Rangoli Metro Gallery, MG Road Bangalore in December 2018. The version shown at the Chennai Photo Biennale in the cavernous Chintadripet Railway Station, was enlarged with additional works by Allan Parker, Chinar Shah and Jun Homma.
This catalogue was created for the first showing of ‘Forget Gold’ and features student work and an introduction by Allan Parker. The slide show below features work from the slightly expanded version shown of the show at the Chennai Photo Biennale (2019).
