Kallol Datta launches fashion and textile exhibition in Kolkata

Published
Jul 15, 2022

On July 15, fashion designer and artist Kallol Datta’s exhibition launched at Kolkata’s Experimenter gallery, featuring textile sculptures made from upcycled sarees and vintage fabrics.

Datta’s intuitive textile sculptures are now on display in Experimenter’s industrial style gallery, paired with bright blue walls and hanging by transparent thread, Experimenter announced on Facebook. For the exhibition, Datta was inspired by the Late Showa Period in Japan and vintage sarees. 
 
“Depending on how the works are installed, the way they rest or fall, different silhouettes form,” Datta told Vogue India about the exhibition. “I don't draw or sketch in the traditional sense. I begin with drafting patterns on paper. How to have circular patterns co-exist with rectangular pieces of fabric.”

Datta collected textiles to use in the project through an online donation drive. The exhibition translates Datta’s avant garde clothing design style into more abstract works of art. 
 
“I see myself as a clothes maker,” said Datta. “I haven't operated as fashion designers do in terms of producing works, exhibiting them, engagement methods, and selling for quite a few years now. But the fashion industry needs an overhaul. There are so many gifted, young designers and design professionals making exciting, important work. But the machinations of the industry are skewed against them. The gatekeeping beginning from the top of the food chain needs to change. For all the #makeinindia attached to every designers' Instagram post, the validation they seek from the global north makes it a grim state of affairs. Introduction of critical thinking, design vs content creation, labour and work... all needs to be addressed.”
