Landscape of Identities
In this crucial time of Covid-19 pandemic we all are told to stay home, so we all browse through the news getting to know the facts worldwide and also the people suffering through the pain. I saw that patients were suffering but so were the poor and the working team, some migrant workers of India had to walk home for days while the working team of police and doctors has been doing their jobs almost entire day. Be it the people shown in news or the people outside my neighbourhood , rich or poor I realised how important life is for me and others and how every person in this world has a different story, an identity of its own to save itself from the horrors in life.
Realising this as an artist I felt to covert this into my art or give it a shape to define the identities I notice around me. In this installation I am depicting people with their portraits of emotions, their individual identities in this frame. Materials that I have used in this work are industrial metal cutouts which are in different sizes and shapes, some shapes are decorative and some are that hurt, some are pretty and some are weird; these basically define us, our nature and therefore I used these to define these individuals. Every piece has its own definition, a tale, an identity and its reflection is seen in these fragmented frames, representing identities of people, humans, us.
