Atul Bhalla Yamuna Morning, 2007
Atul Bhalla’s book, “What will be my defeat?” grew out of Project Y: a public art and outreach project initiated by the Ministry of Culture, Hamburg. Centred on the idea of creating ecological and sustainable rivers in cities, the project was held almost simultaneously in the cities of Delhi and Hamburg between October and November 2011.
Bhalla created a series of works around cross cultural ideas of ecology as basic elements of our identity, through a series of photographs, and text adapted from the Hindu epic Mahabharata, in the form of questions. These images were shown on the project boat in Hamburg. Published and edited by Nina Kalenbach, Till Krause, and Ravi Agarwal (Free River Zone, Hamburg, 2012.) Atul’s enquiries are now posed to a wider audience.
