The world as a garden

A new group show, The World Awaits You Like A Garden, is currently on display at Latitude 28, featuring works by Gopa Trivedi, Manjot Kaur, Priyanka D’Souza, Radhika Agarwala and Wardha Shabbir. It takes inspiration from Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra, in which he describes the garden as a geophilic space of sensorial engagement. “To learn from the birds—Zarathustra’s bird wisdom—is a form of planetary thinking that is heuristically arranged with the world rather than against it,” writes curatorial advisor Sugata Ray. The works on display take inspiration from this premise. On view at Latitude 28, till 30 June, Monday-Saturday, 11 am-7 pm
