Pink Anubhav Highres by Manjunath Kamath
Pink elephant in bathtub
Digital print on archival paper Edition of 50
5 x 7 inches
This is a poem inspired by Manjunath Kamath's 'Pink Elephant in Bathtub' which both parodies and affirms the elusive guerilla artist, Banksy's famous pink elephant in 'Home Sweet Home'. The pink elephant is the thing that is big and bright and bursting forth before us, the superfluity that we birthed and then yearn to be rid of. The poet views the pink elephant not simply as looming issues of socio-economics, but also as the world of independent, non-commercial art and literature, "tiny scowls wearing a chandelier's plume".
