Diploma Project 30213, A Performance Installation
Tanishka Kachru

Sandbox Collective

The landscape of exhibition, theatre and spaces has been changing widely since the past decade. Arising out of the need to create a new vocabulary combining all these elements, the objective of the project was to come with a different visual language on how spaces and theatre could combine. The experiential exhibition was an adaptation of a written text: Mathilukal by Vaikom Mohammed Basheer. Inspired was drawn from the metaphors in the book and an installation was designed that dwells on our obsession with wealth and success, the struggle with identity and technology, and our eternal search for the meaning of love, life and death. It was an experiential journey through time, space and imagination.
