A solo show by Reena Saini Kallat on border conflict and potential resolution draws on symbols like national birds and animals
NEW DELHI :
From a distance, some of the works in artist Reena Saini Kallat’s new show, Hyphenated Lives, look like anatomical drawings of fantastical creatures: a hybrid of an Irish red deer and a lion, the UK’s national animal; a Serbian grey wolf and a Croatian pine marten; and an Indian peacock and a Bangladeshi doyel or Oriental Magpie-Robin. Barbed wire runs through each of the pieces; sometimes as a seam where the animals have been stitched together and sometimes as a perch on which they balance.
