Tagore Lost and Found
Curated by Bina Sarkar Ellias, IndiaBulls Art Gallery and Auction House, New Delhi
"Rabindranath Tagore was inspired by Alice in Wonderland and Western opera when he wrote the dance opera ‘Tasher Desh’ - a satirical portrayal of a society ruled by strict conventions and a veiled criticism of the society he lived in."
The Kingdom of Cards depicted here is a reality embodied in today’s world. The intertwined strands of the orthodox and the liberal, and our society’s continuing failure to separate the two have created a dual discourse – a conflict between the real and fictional – the visible and invisible – the actual and the aspirational.
