VA­SUND­HARA TE­WARI

Tehelka - - BOOKS - TE­WARI

At the 11th Ha­vana Bi­en­nial, a city­wide exhibition in Cuba, I re­ally en­joyed the works of Ai Wei Wei ( For­ever Bi­cy­cles) and Ola­fur Elias­son ( The Blue Dou­ble Kalei­do­scope). TV San­thosh’s A Room To Pray also caught my eye. Highly dra­matic; it is all red, white and sur­rounded by neon lights. There is a story run­ning through it all the time. On three sides its frame is made of white fi­bre glass. It has grim walls made of bone. It is a room that talks about all the neg­a­tive as­pects of our lives. The mov­ing let­ters cre­ate an elec­tric at­mos­phere. Trau­matic yet riv­et­ing it tells the story of the loss of hu­man­ity in con­tem­po­rary In­dia.
