The installation revolves around the elements of earth, water, fire and air, and Gaurav Gupta’s reflections on India. It was presented at Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts.
“When I thought about Be Open and India and my reflection of India, I started thinking of elements. Earth, Water, Fire, Air – there is a powerful elemental and spiritual sense that India brings. What I propose for Be Open is a scene – an installation where there is a sofa, a table, a carpet and three clothed mannequins. A scene where it seems like a large wave of water or a strong breeze or a huge fire has passed through the set up and affected it in a very elemental way.”- Gaurav Gupta
