NadarIPrakriti is the first solo UK exhibition by Indian artist Ravi Agarwal, including new prints commissioned and published by EdinburghPrintmakers.
Ravi Agarwal has a diverse and interdisciplinary practice as an artist, environmental campaigner, writer and curator, and combines the ideas and approaches of science and culture in his projects. Agarwal undertook a research residency in the Scottish Highlands supported by the John Muir Trust to inform a print studio residency at Edinburgh Printmakers, where he developed new print commissions fort his exhibition.
As part of his research, Agarwalc onsidered the various pressures and challenges posed to nature in Scotland and India and community efforts for re-wilding, as well as the ongoing various multidisciplinary conversations to rethink urban sustainability as part of a larger ecospace.
NadarIPrakriti brings these aspects to the fore by interrogating ideas of nature and landscape.
This exhibition is supported by British Council and Creative Scotland with Partnership support from John Muir Trust and Creative CarbonScotland.
