Maansik Sampatti (Intellectual Property)

a performance/installation using commercial soil, sand, cotton seeds and broken green glass bangles, 2011

Between 1995 and 2014, over 300,000 farmers have committed suicide in India. Toward the end of the performance/installation slides featured above you see broken green bangles-a sign of widowhood-sprouting from the soil. Green bangles are traditionally worn by a married woman, and when her husband dies she will often break them in mourning.
