Preview: Max Streicher Ashwamedh
November 25, 2005
Location: Gallery Maskara
Gallery Maskara is proud to announce the second solo show by celebrated artist Max Streicher from Toronto, Canada. Max Streichers works were last seen in Mumbai at Gallery Maskaras ground breaking inaugural show; BREATHE that opened on March 15, 2008.
Max Streicher is best known for his colossal inflated figures and their engagement with architectural spaces - interior and exterior. The work, Ashwamedh, currently installed at Gallery Maskara is a continuation of a series of equestrian monuments, or should we say anti-monuments? For all their enormous presence, they are translucent nylon skins filled with air.
