fabric and sediment embedded in resin, on steel stands

The work REMAINS is formed from the shroud like cloths dipped in the Yamuna in the film Manthan firstly before it mixes with the sewage and secondly after it becomes a real cesspool, the color of the fabric revealing the level of contamination of the polluted river in each case. In the sculptural works thus created, the churned fabric along with sediments from the river are inserted in resin, and then encased to archive the contamination of the river, their toxic translucency capturing the contamination of the present times itself.
