Kausik Mukhopadhyay’s art objects lie on the peculiar intersection of toy, machine and organism. Made out of discarded household gadgets, they have distinct personalities and quirks. They are noisy, humorous and sometimes break down. They invite the viewer to engage and complete the narratives embedded within them. These narratives contain signifiers of political, personal and art history. There is much beauty and poignancy in Mukhopadhyay’s fragile art works. This film takes an intimate look at Mukhopadhyay’s journey as an artist and teacher.
