      Ranjani Shettar: Earth Songs for a Night Sky

      'Earth Songs for a Night Sky' is a multi-faceted project by Ranjani Shettar (b. 1977, Bangalore, India). Drawing from her environment in rural India—with changing skies, monsoon rains, and lush vegetation—and employing traditional materials such as teak wood and indigo pigment, Shettar has created hand-carved wood sculptures and a multi-part piece that wraps up the gallery walls. Part of The Phillips’s ongoing Intersections contemporary art series, the exhibition was conceived in dialogue with Wassily Kandinsky’s artist’s book Klänge (Sounds) and Paul Klee’s late paintings.

      Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.
