Be open

Gaurav Gupta for BE OPEN; Made In India

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
