The Disrobing of Draupadi
Attributed to Nainsukh
India (Guler), Kangra, 1760 - 1768
Gouache with gold on paper

In a famous episode from the Mahabharata, the five Pandava brothers are humiliated by their Kaurava rivals, who have won all their possessions and even their joint wife Draupadi in a dice game. The Kaurava prince Duhshasana attempts to strip Draupadi naked before the assembly. But her honour is miraculously preserved: as fast as her garments are removed, new ones appear in their place.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread (2012)

The film attempts to look at consumption and social conditioning and the film kind of begins with Genesis and looks at the world as it is and takes us through different industrial spaces, agricultural spaces. That’s what I’ve tried to do, to begin with Genesis and end with consumption essentially. Starting with life and how this will to consume is really becoming a part of our system.
