Sunaparanta – Goa Centre for the Arts is delighted to present ‘Ordinary Superheroes: Tales from the Animan Kingdom’, a solo show by Goa-based artist Viraj Naik opening on Friday, 23rd August 2019, 7 pm.  With curatorial direction by Leandre D’Souza, the show is produced by patrons Dipti and Dattaraj Salgaocar. Ordinary Superheroes is a collection of over 95 ink drawings, etchings and sculptures of hybridized subjects, part of Naik’s long-term study of the physiognomy and behaviour of human beings. The exhibition features an evolutionary archive of the human portrait, illustrated as mutilations – where men are disfigured into beasts, monsters and grotesque creatures. Naik’s human-arium is presented as a suspended place, where man metamorphizes into anthropomorphic state/s.
