CHANDIGARH IS IN INDIA. Ed. by Shanay Jhaveri. The Shoestring Publisher, Mumbai, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 288 pp. 29 x 23 cm. ISBN 9788190472074 In English.
Publisher's description: Chandigarh is in India tells the stories of the city of Chandigarh through the works of Indian and Western artists. The Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier's weathered buildings have long circulated as the dominant image of Chandigarh. However, there is much else that is of importance behind and alongside his buildings. Seeking to present differing articulations by artists about Chandigarh, the book consciously makes room for all the freely associative, fantastical and complex responses that make this city so beguiling. It explores how the architecture and the city itself have been used, adopted and adapted in the creative process. Featured artists include Cyprien Gaillard, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Gavin Hipkins, Madan Mahatta, Manuel Bougot, Pradeep Dalal, Seher Shah, Shezad Dawood, Thukral and Tagra, and Yamini Nayar. The book's design plays with notions of interruption and discontinuity, creating a fluid sense of motion within a rigid structure.
