Destroyer

April 13 @ 8:00 AM - June 23 @ 5:00 PM

The AGB is pleased to present a mis-en-scène by Jagdeep Raina. This exhibition titled Destroyer features a selection of ceramics, embroidered tapestries and works on paper. To accompany this mis-en-scène is a poem written by Jagdeep Raina.

Destroyer
Prataap, whose name once meant glory–

how grief has now made him

deranged, crouching with his hands

pressed tight, over Mustafa’s slender throat

Mustafa- the chosen one

whimpers, gasping for a bit of breath

such a waste of friendship, they sob

covered in a desert once full of crops
She sees them, dressed in a silk red pheran

What a disgrace, she quietly whispers

Her hand stretches, reaching for them both
And in the dark and muted night

solace will arrive, flowing

from a second heaven, consuming them
