We took a quick look at the works on display.
Abirami Annamalai has depicted the intricate facets of the Nagarthars. Sanjana Srinivasan has gone into the depths of hierarchy and social taboos regarding the space we give to people of lower caste. Her headless men are a metaphor to the fact that anyone can be subject to discrimination.
