School by Subodh Gupta

February 12, 2010

A preview of an upcoming installation of work by Subodh Gupta: a series of 45 brass cast stools and stainless steel utensils.

By casting these elements in such culturally-loaded materials as brass and steel, multiplying their numbers, and arranging them in a perfect, grid-like pattern in a gallery, Gupta transforms them from traditional items into something extraordinary and enigmatic, producing an act of displacement that speaks to the cultural, economic and social changes faced by contemporary society.
