Artist Jitish Kallat's 10 most memorable works

Updated on Feb 02, 2023 10:41 PM IST
Modus Vivendi (1000 people – 1000 Homes), 2000: In this self-portrait, a work of mixed media on canvas, Kallat appears as a swaggering, bespectacled juggler of heart and brain. The painting is an exploration of selfhood in the city of Mumbai, where he grew up and lives. The individual, lost in the multitudes, wanders in a state of perpetual disorientation, as reflected in the work. The radiating streaks of red, orange and green, reminiscent of thermal imagery, were achieved by texturing the canvas with layers of paint or canvas and then peeling off some parts to attain the desired visual effect.(Courtesy: Jitish Kallat) 10

Jitish Kallat, 49, has used rotis to represent the moon and a fogscreen to play with ideas of hate and harmony, creating a vivid and unique visual vocabulary that deploys the most everyday materials to tell his stories. “The medium or material always follows the initial intuition or impulse… there is a slow metamorphosis from the intangible to the tangible,” he says. As Kallat marks his 25th year as an artist, take a look at Riddhi Doshi's list of his 10 most memorable projects.

At first sight: For centuries, sunspots were thought to be Mercury passing across the Sun. By the early 17th century, with the invention of the telescope, astronomers could get a clearer look. In 1610, Galileo Galilei (who first used the telescope to observe space) in Italy and his British contemporary Thomas Harriot identified these as spots on the Sun. Seen here are 35 drawings of sunspots created by Galileo between June 2 and July 8, 1612.(Image Courtesy: The Galileo Project / Rice University) 6

Goa-based architect and historian Vishvesh Prabhakar Kandolkar’s site-specific installation. This is not the Basilica! It is a large print of the the Basilica of Bom Jesus hidden behind a protective covering of palm fronds, to indicate the fragile nature of the structure and the weak efforts made to protect the 16th-century monument.  (Vishvesh Prabhakar Kandolkar) 7
