Gostana is showcasing terrific talent! For their current display at Gostana they bring you Ajungla Imchen, who has exhibited some of her works in Maison Du Governeur in France and the India International Centre (ICC) in Delhi.
The exhibition of her newest collection will go on in Gostana from 21st February to mid-April.
Ajungla has her new collection of work essentially inspired and influenced from a culture she comes from. Fossilised forms of nature – from fish to forms of crustaceans – all tell a story of their own of how things have been, leaving imprints of their forms. Through her work she has tried to bring to life an old fossilised culture of animism where symbolism played roles in telling a story or myths that were attached to forms of an animal or insect. She has brought into her canvas the same feeling of stone imprints by using soil as a medium as well as foil to create texture.
Fossils in themselves denote history of an animal or insect by leaving imprintations. Similarly past history and beliefs leave imprints in the way of our thoughts leading to rituals we follow in spite of modernisation and progress.
There is always a myth that fascinates and a superstition of doom or good fortune that follow a story. This array of tales on canvas will leave imprints on our minds.
Open your thoughts to an artist’s vision, at Gostana!
Ajungla Imchen is an art professional graduated from Kala Bhavan, an art university in Santiniketan which the renowned poet Rabindranath Tagore founded in West Bengal. She has exhibited some of her works in Maison Du Governeur in France, the India International Centre (ICC) in Delhi, and Saffron Art (Delhi). Through her art pieces at Gostana she hopes to engage the viewer to a world of imagination, distinctively her own.

Curated by artist and scholar Dr. Paula Sengupta, the exhibition charts printmaking’s eventful journey in India.
The journey reaches from its inception as a tool of the colonial enterprise to its rapid success in the printing industry in the 18th century, and the entry of the Indian bazaar print in the hands of the artisan as well as the art school-trained artist. It examines the changes in themes, techniques and aesthetic triggered by modernism, whose first seeds are sown in Santiniketan and Calcutta and seen in the works of stalwarts like Ramendranath Chakravorty, Gaganendranath Tagore and Haren Das, the subsequent expansion of printmaking to various regional art centres and institutions spread across the country, and the increasing presence of technology in printmaking. Charting the printmaking journey from colonial times to the present-day, this seminal exhibition showcases the works of nearly a hundred and fifty artists, and also features the Kolkata-based Pradip Bothra Collection.
