Project By Nityan Unnikrishnan, in collaboration with Rukminee Guha Thakurta

We stand here, in what might have been one of the world’s great city centres, inundated with images, information and promises of a ‘better’ tomorrow. We may not know it but we are in fact adrift in a sea of seductive myths and casuistic mythologies, clutching at words like progress, development, wealth… Then there are those who aren’t able to swim; are struggling to keep head above water. Referencing them in particular, this work suggests a few parts of the hole – ideas that are ‘central’ to the world order, ideas that are uncaring of edges and margins. These inflated, bloated blobs of synthetic material, spread across Panjim, speak for themselves, between themselves and, we hope, to you, the viewer.
