'Cooking the World'

Step through the entrance of the National Museum, and you’ll be confronted by a suspended, gargantuan sphere made from… used pots and pans. Subodh Gupta’s departure from his usual objects of choice – he’s used plates, cups and pails in his past works – carries a message that’s as thought-provoking as Cooking the World is show-stopping. You can’t help but admire Gupta’s ingenuity in creating an installation out of used aluminium kitchenware, each inscribed with anecdotes from his life, and each with a representation of the juxtaposition between the lives of marginalised individuals and the privileged. It’s serious stuff, but for an installation of such scale – and one that demands attention – surely it deserves a slice of your time.
