Artist Series E14: Purnaa Deb’s “A Tale of Quests”

In this Session, Mthabisi Sithole talks to Indian-born Purnaa Deb about home, nostalgia, identity and reaching beyond the exotic membrane found in her work. Exploring printmaking in collaboration with homegrown Indian processes, Deb investigates and reconciles those instances that drive one’s walk into self with a surprising nuance and tenderness.

“A Tale Of Quests” is Purnaa Deb’s first solo showing since first arriving in South Africa back in 2015. The show opens 3 May 2018 at 151 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood; 18H00.
