His latest work, ‘Gods Summit’, envisions a utopian conversation amongst the Gods and Prophets about the predicament of what humanity has done to itself.

In the installation a tent functions as the symbolic meeting place of the summit. Collaged sound clips from films in multiple languages form the Gods’ deliberation, with translation projected nearby. Temsuyanger highlights events from global history at some key pivotal moments where irreversible change has occurred. This seminal piece of work raises the question of what it means to have power, control, authority, wisdom, vision.

Surrounding the installation are photographs of the series of sculptures ‘SUPERSTARS, Portraits of Remarkable People I Have Met’. Buffalo skulls form the base of the sculptures, each crafted with various materials to characterize the individual protagonists. The use of buffalo skulls originates from the traditional Naga practice of adorning dwellings with animal skulls to commemorate special events. Temsuyanger is referencing this dying culture and adds personalized symbolism to these portraits.

The juxtaposition of the two works in this exhibition reflects on Temsuyanger’s interest in spiritual belief systems, archetypes and inspirational characters as well as overlapping truths in a multicultural society.

The exhibition Gods Summit will be at the Art Gallery, Kamaladevi Complex will remain on view until 19 April 2017, 11 am to 7 pm.
