I’m doing an Audio Visual installation at the Academy of Fine Arts from the 2nd to 8th October 2018 titled “Dehumanized Body : India 2018.” Everyday, for 1/2 hour from 6-6:30 the artist and audience becomes a live part of the artwork. This performance as well as the installation is about the continuous ongoing dehumanization of people by individuals and state. I have channelled our violent surroundings and times through my body into the piece. It is a current cultural commentary.
The work is meant to force an acknowledgement of how violent a society we are without recourse to superficial delusions of grandeur, to show reality, to present a mirror and to evoke a response for change. The motivation is to do the job of artist. The elements used to design the performance are “objects used to dehumanize” , “artist” , “mirrors” , “ongoing visual projections of the installation” , “sound” and “audience”.
I need help to manage the audience interaction as I perform. To volunteer, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or 9967303965
