Cre­ated by the Mum­bai-based Ra­hal, Bar­ri­ca­dia is an imag­i­nary land of bat­tling mon­ster­men, in which an apoc­a­lyp­tic at­mos­phere of HP Love­craft sci-fi is in­fil­trated by mem­o­ries of In­dian folk leg­ends and con­cerns about Is­lam­o­pho­bic lynch­ings. Sculp­tural pro­tag­o­nists as­sem­bled from clogged-up chicken wire and junk are set against a back­drop of loom­ing char­coal and ink. Videos obliquely take their scripts from gri­moire books of sor­cer­ous spells. It’s a the­atre of the ab­surd for an in­ter­net-savvy post-truth time. RC CCA: Cen­tre for Con­tem­poary Arts, Sat to 29 Oct
