7000 Museums: A Project For The Republic Of India is comprised of a comprehensive body of artworks, with oil paintings, water colours and sculptural assemblages. The works evoke a layered dialogue with varied conceptual frameworks from the Museum’s collection, as they reference defining moments of history, art history as well as the semantics of museums and museum displays.Atul addresses the complexity of various simultaneous happenings in history - of politics, art and culture, through playful interventions in his works. The water colour series humorously addresses ideas of local cultural representation through a construction of mock museums which represents both a lament and a hope.
