“Blue Book, Moon Rock” in Art India

Premnath’s Blue Book, Moon Rock, featured a photograph of a shadowy moon rock, a chalkboard, a screen print of the moon and a light projector. Propped on a wall, each object reavealed a different aspect of man’s relationship with the moon. The dusty blackboard reminded us of science projects at primary school, while the fraying photograph recalled old magazine articles celebrating America’s triumph in getting the first man onto the moon. These rational readings give way to more mysterious ones as we approached the shifting light cast by the projector onto softly gleaming silver-sprayed acetate. Was Premnath recreating the bewitching effects of moonlight?
