Project By Salil Chaturvedi

What happens when a wheelchair begins desiring? And what if it develops topophilia? Places My Chair Likes to Go is a photographic work that imagines such an eventuality of a desiring machine.
Embedded in a variety of natural surroundings, the wheelchair takes on the form of an experiencing entity and acquires the naturalness of its surroundings; over this series, it becomes something that is almost expected in a landscape. The work raises several questions and brings together strands from politics, ecology, desire and being, asking viewers to undertake the journey of a becoming-wheelchair.
