Noon Rest

Artist: Vinu V.V.
installation | Tree trunk and sickles | 2014

These sickles, inscribed with caste names and geographies, are neither symbols nor an assembly, but a concatenation of singularities. On a tree trunk, they propose labour in a different moment of its manifestation: of repose and defiance. The field they evoke is at once essential, and a threat to the ideologies and imaginaries of productivity.
