Writing on the Wall

Last weekend we visited the Art Gallery of Western Australia to see some of the current exhibitions. This installation artwork particularly caught our attention. It is by Jitish Kallat and is titled Public Notice 2.

The text is the speech that Gandhi made before setting out on his march across India to protest against the salt tax. He established the pattern of peaceful civil disobedience for all subsequent protestors. The monumental work is on display until 22 August.
