Shunya的意思是無、零、不存在、空,也是遠離短暫政體與社會的一群個體。2012年,原先在孟買的Nikhil Raunak、Amol Patil、Sachin Bonde、Poonam Jain、Yogesh Barve、Rupali Patil、Prabhakar Pachpute在Clark House Initiative相遇,當時成員們剛從印度三所不同的大學畢業,來自藝術領域不同的學科。他們藉由參數探索藝術場景的可能性與建築的不同特性。實踐Shunya的方式並不限於展演空間,更可向外延伸到社區建築,成為某種抵抗含義:製作壁畫、張貼藝術家創作的海報於公共空間、進行公共表演、在公共空間展示文件或發放文宣,使得平常沒機會接觸的人們有更多詮釋的空間。什麼是社區的聲音?當社區聲音從不同的地形迴響並於現有的政治、社會變化和時間的基礎上牽動我們,什麼是重要的? 集體行為真的是集體嗎?作者身份的作用為何?我們應如何認知?

 

Shunya means void, cipher, non- existence or it could mean vacant as well. Shunya can also be a group of secluding individual existence in transitory politics and society. Initially based in Bombay the group of people: Nikhil Raunak, Amol Patil, Sachin Bonde, Poonam Jain, Yogesh Barve, Rupali Patil and Prabhakar Pachpute who met gradually at Clark House Initiative in 2012. The members were recent graduates from three different universities in India perceiving multi-disciplinary subjects in art. The group explores the possibilities of participation in an art scene that closed door through and architecture of discrimination, based on parameters.The practice of Shunya is not restricted in the form of exhibition space. It’s output stretches to the community architecture, which becomes part of the resistance. Making murals, using posters made by artist and sticking them on public walls and performance. Taking archive and using it in public spaces or distributing pamphlets, keeping it open to the interpretation for those who hardly have access to it.
