Each piece is composed of cooking instruments, used pails, traditional Indian lunch boxes and glass bowls. Together, they recall Gandhi's famous visual metaphor – the three wise monkeys that represent the 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' proverb.
Gandhi’s Three Monkeys by Subodh Gupta
Located in the midst of Katara, Doha’s bustling cultural village, Gandhi’s Three Monkeys by Subodh Gupta captures attention. Tackling the challenging themes of war and peace, the three-part sculpture consists of three heads – one in a gas mask, one a soldier and the other in a terrorist hood.
Gupta’s work shifts between different mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, video and performance.
Throughout his art, he uses objects that are recognisable icons of Indian life, such as domestic kitchenware, bicycles, scooters and taxis. By relocating them from their original context, he elevates their status from common object to valued artwork.
