Yesterday we went to see the exhibition “Gandhi in Me” at Barracks Square in Perth. The rather psychedelic looking steel artworks are by Vibhor Sogani, who is based in New Delhi. The exhibition was presented by a Perth-based organisation called Borderless Gandhi, which promotes Gandhi’s values of peace, equality and nonviolence.
Somehow Mahatma Gandhi’s iconic image seems to be prominent in each artwork, despite all the distorted reflections. Incidentally, “Mahatma” wasn’t Gandhi’s first name – it is a title and very appropriately means “the great one/soul”. The exhibition finished yesterday.
