Clemente: Made in India

Overview

Francesco Clemente (born 1952) first visited India in 1973, and was immediately enchanted by its chaotic blend of modernity and antiquity. In the country's larger cities like New Delhi and Madras, Hindu iconography joins in the larger visual cacophony of advertisement posters and hoardings found on temple exteriors, wayside shrines, cinema houses, shops, restaurants, buses and taxis, proliferating in an irreverent bombardment of spirituality and commerce.

Very Good
Artist Francesco Clemente (b.1952) first traveled to India in 1973 in search of “somewhere else.” During his visits, Clemente’s image-indulgent eye, always ready to conquer the ... world as picture, “took innumerable routes through the ever-mutating cartography of Indian visual culture. In fact, it seems the images got used to him – they rotated around him, gravitated towards him, surrounded him by capillary attraction. Temple exteriors, shop signage, calendars, bidi wrappers, advertisements, graffiti…Clemente built up an archive of these Indian images – both in his memory and in his notebooks filled with hundreds of drawings, lying latent over decades, coalescing, talking to each other, eventually surfacing in his work in another incarnation, another context.

More About This Book

Overview

Francesco Clemente (born 1952) first visited India in 1973, and was immediately enchanted by its chaotic blend of modernity and antiquity. In the country's larger cities like New Delhi and Madras, Hindu iconography joins in the larger visual cacophony of advertisement posters and hoardings found on temple exteriors, wayside shrines, cinema houses, shops, restaurants, buses and taxis, proliferating in an irreverent bombardment of spirituality and commerce. Nine years later, Clemente would acquire a home in India, dividing his time between New York, Italy and Madras. The artist's iconography reaches deep into Indian religious art and its extraordinary presence in urban visual culture, and his art is profoundly characterized by this resource, as well as by other spiritual traditions flourishing in India, such as Theosophy. Francesco Clemente: Made in India is the artist's love letter to the country. It compiles hundreds of drawings, collages and notebooks made over the past few decades, revealing Clemente's ever-active, image-hungry eye and conveying the great wealth of the vast iconographic archive upon which his work draws. Also included is a 1992 conversation between Clemente and poets Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky, expanding on the influence of Indian culture upon western art and literature in recent decades.
