44.0 x 44.0 (inch)Jitish Kallat Infinitum, 2014 Pigment print of Hahnemuhle photo rag paper 44 x 44 inches Edition: 2/3 In a series of works in various media, light box, photography, and video, Jitish Kallat explores the formal and semantic analogies of planetary forms and food. He uses the ‘roti’, the Indian bread and a staple diet on the subcontinent, to represent the waxing and waning of the moon. In both cases, food serves as a metaphor of sustenance, there one day and vanishing the next, much like the cycle of the moon that oscillates between abundance and dearth.
