Superheroes ~ The League of Superheroes

League of Superheroes, 2013, Lenticular and vinyl on archival mount, 60 x 48 in

The guardians of the Multiverse created a vast legion of Heroes called the chosen... A handful of carefully selected mortals – plus one extradimensional being whose place in all this is a mystery. It is because of them we're here, because of their sacrifice – a sacrifice of everything we know to be normal.

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.
