On view at the Asian Art Museum in the Phantoms of Asia exhibition, CLOSING SOON.
New Delhi-based artist Jagannath Panda lives in the burgeoning city of Gurgaon, which is one of India’s major outsourcing hubs and bases of operation for global corporations. His works illustrate the city’s tensions, as overdevelopment threatens natural habitats and infrastructures collapse before they are completed. Panda’s mix of mythology and realism points to the evolving nature of Indian identity and experience today. His snake sculpture, The Cult of Survival, is an expression of the danger in becoming addicted to the cycle of production and consumption in a rapidly changing world.
Can you guess what this sculpture is made out of?
This is a series of interactive postcards at the museum to go hand-in-hand with Phantoms of Asia. We ask you a question, and you write/draw a response. You also get to take home the other half of the piece, a postcard featuring gorgeous artwork.
We will be posting more responses, as well as posting new questions/artwork as well. There are four questions, total, each paired with beautiful art from Phantoms.
As always, we’d love for you to chime in with your own responses. Just click here and submit your own response to this question. Pretty please? And if you haven’t seen Phantoms of Asia, maybe you can just answer the question with “Phantoms” being whatever it is that haunts you (just explain what it is for context).
#PHANTOMS party tonight is gonna swallow us up in fun. Amazing art, artists in attendance, free sips and nibbles, cash bars, cafe open late, sexy times.
