生命與自然 Life and Nature
Janak Jhankar Narzary
Soil, earthen bowls, various seeds, fruits, water, eggs
Janak creates an installation in circular shape, which the mount in the center is made of soil and decorated with earthen bowls. The bowls are filled with materials like seeds, fruits, water, soil, eggs, etc. The installation is watered every morning and evening to get the seeds sprouting and growing day by day. The central concept of this artwork is to express the cyclic order of nature: seeds are from life, and life is from seeds. It also presents the transformation taking place in an environmental chemistry of five elements -- water, fire, earth, space and air. The round shape symbolizes the circulation, the five levels mean the five elements, the two eggs are like the combination of male and female (the birth of life), and six apples represent the six emotions human possess.
