I Was Not Waving but Drowning
December 3, 2010-April 2, 2011
This sequence of 14 photographs captures contemporary Indian artist Atul Bhalla’s act of submergence in the Yamuna River. In these contemplative images, the artist and river have equal prominence. Bhalla engages with water as a medium, exploring contemporary political and environmental issues and drawing on cultural and religious associations with water as a life source.
