Jitish Kallat: Infinitum (here after here)


In the single-channel video ‘Infinitum (here after here)’, each of the thirty rotis (breads) go through an evolutionary cycle, emerging slowly to evolve into fullness, and through a cycle of consumption, finally return to emptiness. The image of the roti morphs with the waxing and waning of the moon. With its sweeping interplay of scales and proximities, the video evokes the themes of time, sustenance, the astral and the sky; preoccupations that have recurred across Jitish Kallat’s wide-ranging work.
