Pavilion of India at Arsenale

GR Iranna | Naavu (We together)

The on-site installation titled Naavu (We Together), uses the padukas in congregation. In it’s conception, Iranna plays with the idea of proximity and distance: the swarm of padukas on the wall when seen from a distance appear as a solid mass of energy, bearing a single identity. On a closer viewing, they draw the viewers to engage with individual symbols/stories that hint at people from all walks of life – the farmer, barber, moneylender, coppersmith or artist, all together to uphold values of self-dignity, peace and freedom.
