Neti Neti (not this, not this either) is a celebration of chaos, of the ‘multitude’, a time to dream for future Revolutions! Three drawing fragments, are superimposed one on top of the other: first- a ‘kollam’ floor pattern; second- a grid map of Alaknanda, the area in Delhi where the artist resides; and third- a random doodle on a blank piece of paper. Conceptually, this tussle between different structuring principles: past (tradition), present (location), and the future (dynamic and random), creates the conditions for transforming that which is oppressive towards new possibilities.
