Faces made of denim cloth, cars that don't move, optical illusions and interactive works ó here's a selection that attracted visitors on Day 1 from amid a rather unimpressive lot on display at the ongoing United Art Fair.
Kerala-based artist Vincent Pallissery's works at the fair such as Iron Lady and Lord's Rats, besides three others, had people grouping around his "anamorphic" style ó illusions created on metallic cylinders, with a very different pattern reflecting from the canvas beneath it. Pallissery says it's a technique that vanished about 1600 years ago and was often used to relay secret messages on war sites. Each work took him about nine months to complete.
Mumbai-based Kunal Naik's 2011 series "In Search of the Lost Code", is ready to be hit by a plywood stick, held by its drawer knobs, or switched on or off. This interactive series includes objects such as bells from Kutch, a 120-year-old photo plate, coconut grater and ancient ceramic base switches.
