Parentheses

In Jitish Kallat’s Parentheses, the image of a roti (Indian bread) is mapped onto the image of the moon. Each roti goes through its evolutionary cycle of manifesting out of nowhere, slowly evolving from dust to fullness and through a cycle of consumption each returns to emptiness. A meditation on time, Parentheses also serves as a metaphor for ‘sustenance’, as a script inscribed in the night sky waxing and waning between abundance and dearth.
