The philosophy of Bijoy Jain ViA @chemouldprescottroad
Space, for Bijoy Jain, is a ‘container ’ rather than a challenge to "taming" and controlling it. The result could be ‘art objects’, they could also be architectural structures. Or they could be relics that have been collected over time. Memories, collective and/or collected is also a large part of what defines Bijoy's art making process.
Studio Mumbai is a hub of activity at any time, and not just in terms of architectural drawings and design thinking. It is equally a space of materiality where experiments with construction, form, with pigment colour, with ure, with surface, with depth, with excavation, are constantly played out. If on a certain day you spot a structure which has taken a certain form, that form could have changed innumerable times by the time you return. There is a sense of continual processing. Finality is not the purpose, and indeed there is not a systematic series of actions directed towards an end.
