Group exhibition Illusive Illusions with works from Sofie Kjørum Austlid, Einar Mølmann Fuglem, Dev Dhunsi and Luna Lopez
Dev Dhunsi is a Norwegian artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. He makes work from his journeys to his parent’s home country of India. Dhunsi’s images often deal with noise, distractions, and machinery that is happening outside the picture frame.
In Gestures, when led by a hair Dhunsi presents 36 portraits of a hearing impaired truck driver standing outside a factory. On the phone, he is communicating with his boss regarding issues with the cargo he’s collecting. Dhunsi observed him while he entered a factory and realized the great contrast between his quiet and affectual body language, to the unbearable noise outside.
