Item description for K.K. Klapheck Paintings by Konrad Klapheck...
This volume accompanies a traveling exhibition-curated by art historian and critic Deepak Ananth and supported by Hermes, Paris-of the work of two well-known but unrelated Indian photographers, Raghubir and Dayanita Singh. Raghubir Singh's photographs focus on the iconic Indian car, the Ambassador, which was modeled on the British Morris Oxford. In these oftentimes abstract photographs, shot mostly in the last years of Singh's life, the doors and windshields of the cars become the frames to the images. Dayanita Singh's work is taken from two recent Steidl books, Sent a Letter, which poetically documents Singh's recent travels in India, and Go Away Closer, in which Singh considers opposites in India: presence and absence, reality and dreams,tradition and progress.

Since the 1950s, German painter Konrad Klapheck has been investigating industrial machines and everyday objects like typewriters, sewing machines and ventilators, all subtly anthropomorphized and endowed in his work with psychological, social and political meaning. In its unexpected combination of deadpan depiction and evocative playfulness, Klapheck's canvases forge an important link in 20th Century art, melding elements from Surrealism and Pop Art with a singular painterly sensibility to create a uniquely influential body of work.
