This exhibtion merges the global wars and cinematic traditions

Sunday Guardian

K.M. Madhusudhanan’s solo exhibition, entitled Granite Lamp & Mirror, includes oil paintings, sculptures, and ink and charcoal drawings, produced by the artist in the last two years.


Continuing his two-tier engagement with global wars, and cinema as a historical and cerebral medium, the show opens up questions of image-making and identity, refracted through the lens of politics. The title of the exhibition cites Sri Narayana Guru’s revolutionary socio-religious interventions in the public realm. With this exhibition, the artist’s new works initiate a series of hundred works in conversation with and mirroring Narayana Guru’s philosophical text Atmopadesa Satakam or One Hundred Verses on Self-Instruction.
