In her installation “Neelkanth: poison I nectar”, the artist examines the issue of environmental pollution. Inspired by the story of the god Shiva, who swallows all the poison in the world and keeps it stored in his throat, the artist’s workshop examines the distinction between poison and medicine, which, according to an old rule, is determined by dosage. The myth of “Neelkanth: poison I nectar” also points out that the pollution of the environment goes along with the pollution of language.
