Made in India (2004) Works by Avijit Mukul Kishore

A rural artist paints her autobiography, images of Bollywood movie icons are erased after a week-long run of their A still from Made in Indiafilms, the national flag flutters on 150 kites, installation artists paint pop icons on the rolling shutters of shops, religious icons jostle for attention with plastic flowers on the vendor's cart, after the WTC the sale of toy planes goes up. Symbols of nationalism become a fashionable commodity. Made in India is about contemporary visual cultures in India.
