Subodh Gupta

Sobodh uses everyday objects in extreme numbers that reflect on the economic transformation of India. He uses the scale of his projects to convey meaning. The instillation entitled ‘Line of Control’ is 11m x 11m in size.

In 2008, when this piece was made, he said “Today, after the Agni- V missile launch, my mushroom cloud has a clear message – we do not want another Hiroshima,”. 

I find objects and instillation that make you question their meaning and purpose incredibly interesting. This response stems from an emotional response but in its entirety is intellectual.
