Method, Kala Ghoda presents a group show by 4 artists titled "What Remains" starting 11th November, until 27th November 2021. With the seismic shift taking place in society as we know it, we are faced with a question: Through constant change, is there strength in what remains? In regard to the personal or the intimate, life may be nothing more than a stripping away. But when something fades away, does newness ever bloom?

Yashwant Singh was Born in Bharatpur (Rajasthan) in 1994, Yashwant Singh received both BFA (2017) and MFA (2019) degrees from the College of Art, New Delhi, where he is now based.

Arshi Sayed is a Mumbai-based multi-media artist with a diploma in graphic design and communication. Her work revolves around the exploration of the self that exists within the visible self. An ecosystem of passing thoughts, obsessive behaviours, death, and grief; an interplay of various forms of matter. It explores mental and spiritual displacement, growth of metaphysical life forms; a contraption of being and believing.
