EXHIBIT #7:

Pilgrimage to Paradox


Graphic-Essay


Drafted to Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), these drawings and writings speak to the French sculptor’s poetic response to photographs of a bronze sculpture of a dancing Śivā. Calling for repatriation of the bronze body of Śivā, the essay takes the sculptor on a festive pilgrimage from the government museum in Chennai to the grandtemple in Cidambaram, only to gaze at a black stone in the temple’s innermost dark chamber.
