Maruts – Storm Deities

Artist: Vishal K Dar
installation, video | Site-specific installation with beam lights and reflection pool | 2016

Clouds, capable of shaking mountains and destroying forests, blazing in their strength, brilliant like fires, impetuous: Maruts are Vedic storm deities that wield lightning and thunderbolts. Here they create indistinct territories and hallucinatory zones as computer controlled oscillating beams of light set to varying metronomic meters over a vast reflection pool.
