In the Antarmukhi I and II, Antar - meaning inside and Mukh - meaning the mouth, or more appropriately here, the entry point ; Bhuvanesh Gowda has created a statement about the starting point of looking inwards and within. In a unique pedestal like structure, these carved salvaged wood sculptures breathe in movement suspended in time, and the concept of introspection and retrospection is wounded into the ethos of Gowda’s artistic practise.
