Sheela Gowda: Remains

Pirelli HangarBicocca / Milan / Art

“A lot of my work involves inserting myself into the recycling of materials,” says the Indian artist Sheela Gowda. “I enter the life of that material and I choose to bring it back into another space, which is the space of an artwork. So it gets another life.” Incense, hair rope, old metal, stones. Fragility, ephemerality, transformation, pattern. A major solo show of Gowda’s work—her first in Italy—ranges from watercolors and prints to site-specific installations that complement this Milanese gallery’s looming space. —J.V.
