Postcards from the Peacock Islands
Essay-Installation, mixed media (writing, drawing, photographs, video)
This work is a collection of imagined correspondences between Arjunā and Ekalavya, two characters in the Sanskrit epic-poem Mahābhārata who have had little room for interaction in the historic text. The expanding body of postcards tells sprawling stories of autodidacts and archivists, philologists and princes, enchanters and ethnographers, warriors and dancers, brothers and lovers.
