Our understanding of current issues of a global and political nature is invariably shaped and altered by the media.

It’s difficult to draw a line to distinguish between honest representation of facts and their distortion or manipulation.

Even truth can be subjective. What is projected and seen may not be the complete truth. As an artist, I try to formulate a language that is capable of capturing notions of reality.

Well, my shows continue to feature sculptures so I’m not sure you could say that I’ve shifted away from sculpting. But, yes, there was a gap of couple of years when I concentrated much on painting, and in the process, painting took a new direction and sculpture got bit sidelined.

I had my piece of struggle. At one stage I had to do some odd jobs, but now I’m doing o.k.  After college, though, I wasn’t really sure how to approach galleries, how to show my work…but then things just turned out and I didn’t have to worry that much.

These paintings remind us that, morally, we are where the action is; and the action is where we are.

For me art has one language and it is not relevant to divide the artistic legacy and production into Western or non-Western.

My themes are universal, although my references could be named the Indian village traditions, i.e. usage of cow dung and the importance of food. There is a combination of local and global languages. Everybody can read and understand in my art the paradoxes of our life.

I, as an artist, don’t have any control over these individual stories and I do my best to not interfere with them by presenting them in the exact condition in which I received them.

Utensils aren’t sad and rejected when I receive them as much as they are ready for rebirth.

To me these utensils are in any case on the brink of transformation when I get them from scrapyards, so there’s no pressure to represent them in any particular way, they are ready to tell a new story.

I've always been close to performance, as I started out in street theatre before I became an artist and my work often has a strong performative element.

I don't know how I feel about a 'signature' material, because as an artist, I'm always looking and exploring different materials.

It’s a series of shows, all one after the other. It’s like really all promising, all exciting, and I know I’m greedy so I have to do it all. So I’m excited and nervous.

It’s 20-years worth of works in my life and I’m bringing in work from all over the world. That’s quite exciting
