Effectively unfolding three solo exhibitions within one frame, In Letter and Spirit brings together the work of three artists who, in their distinctive ways, engage with the mystery of text. Saubiya Chasmawala, Youdhisthir Maharjan, and Muzzumil Ruheel address text in varied forms, invoke the diverse contexts it inhabits. To them, text is a site where voice meets the materiality of script, where signals are encoded and decoded, where a lively interplay takes place between language and visuality.
