Exhibition explores political 'darkness' through Narayana Guru's philosophy


For Kerala-born filmmaker-artist K.M. Madhusudhanan, the interplay between personal and political, local and global, and light and shade form the fulcrum of his ongoing exhibition "Granite Lamp and Mirror" here, the title of which derives from the 19th century social reformer Narayana Gurus philosophical texts.

Running at the Vadehra Art Gallery till October 25, the show has utilised the idiom of the granite block, lamp and mirror -- all installed by the anti-caste Kerala guru into temples as a rejection of upper caste principles.
