More details

To accompany the Saatchi Gallery’s exhibition, The Empire Strikes Back: Indian Art Today, one of the artists featured in the show, Jitish Kallat has worked closely with the Saatchi Gallery and Edition Copenhagen to create a limited edition original, signed and numbered laser cut lithograph print.

The lithographic print ‘Sweatopia (1000 People/ 1000 Homes)’ has a simple image of a shirt hung to dry on a clothes line. As if the garment were a carrier of the city’s inner secrets, it drips a thousand narratives culled from a vast, colliding humanscape. The string it hangs on is formed by a text drawn from Tristan Tzara's nonsensical and richly layered dada poem titled ‘The Great Lament Of My Obscurity Three’.
