I’m doing seven actions involving river stones from Narmada. The stones are self-made, the ellipsoid generated by millions of years of river erosion.
Swayambhu:sanskrit word meaning self-generated.
The ready made in my work evokes a symbolic space where actants from deep-history play the lead roles.
Imagine the mise-en-scene, the proscenium arch, the chairs suddenly leaping onto the stage to become the main actants in the narrative.
No deus ex machina will come to our rescue.
