Museum Bhavan by Dayanita Singh
Dayanita Singh is among the most renowned contemporary photographers in the world. Her latest project, Museum Bhavan, is a beautiful boxed set of nine intimate concertina books. It is a marriage of photography’s two major formats: book and exhibition, and creates an experience where books have the same, if not greater, artistic value than prints hanging on a gallery wall. Museum Bhavan was named ‘Book of the Year’ at the prestigious Paris Photo 2017.
The images in Museum Bhavan have been intuitively grouped into lyrical chapters to tell a visual story such as ‘Little Ladies Museum’ and ‘Ongoing Museum,’ as well as more specific series like ‘Museum of Machines.’ Singh encourages her readers/viewers to install and curate these mini exhibitions as they wish in their own homes or in public spaces.
