Graphic-Essay (work-in-progress)

As an artistic anthropology of being in the temple, this work dwells on the sensory experience of attending to a singular sculpture in the inner most chamber of Śivā temples in south India. Drafted out to Auguste Rodin, these drawings and writings speak to the sculptor’s poetic response in French to photographs of a bronze sculpture of a dancing Śivā.
