Ritesh Meshram has harked back to the simpler ethos of being homeward bound. With heavy rusted metal, attractive to Meshram due to its material nature and the sound, he has created mirror images of an eye, a hammer and a hut. He feels that they evoke the feeling of being easily held in one’s palm and setting out on a walk down the street, but also, kept together, they are engaged in deep conversation and discord which is Meshram’s reflection of contemporary society ingrained with contentious social and political issues.
