This is a major mid-career exhibition of New Delhi-based artist Subodh Gupta, and is spread across two buildings: the ornate Jaipur House – for paintings and small-scale sculptures – and the modern glass extension. Gupta’s sculptures are made from everyday objects and utensils that are ubiquitous in India, like the steel tiffin boxes used by millions to carry their lunch, along with milk pails, thali pans, even bicycles. By incorporating these objects into his work, Gupta refects on the transformation of his homeland.
One of the largest installations to be seen at the show is a site-specific piece that transforms the staircase of the new wing into a cascading mass of stainless-steel utensils, frozen mid-avalanche and the equally imposing sculpture, Very Hungry God (2006).
