National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, is currently hosting a solo by Subodh Gupta, one of India’s pre-eminent contemporary artists. Titled “Everyday Divine,” it runs through October 23.
The exhibition is presented in collaboration with New York-based art collector Larry Warsh. Through his works, Gupta celebrates everyday life with objects used by a majority of Indians in domestic and street life. He considers everything around as divine, as expostulated in Hinduism, the religion Gupta grew up following.
Exhibited in the show are key works from Gupta’s creations including “Cow 2003”, a bronze and aluminium sculpture of a life-size bicycle and milk pails, which symbolize the travels and travails of everyday village life.
