Udita Upadhyaya_Install_0002_by Nathan Smith

This photo shows part of the floor of the gallery, with sunlight from outside casting the shadow of the windowsill, the windowframe, and a motif of intersecting vinyl triangular shapes onto the grey rug. Black vinyl letters are installed directly onto the white gallery walls, in the form of words and phrases in English and Hindi. Text appears in different sizes and spatial orientations (e.g., right-side up, upside-down, diagonal, vertical, and organic shapes), with some words/phrases expanded in space, condensed, or intersecting with other text. Gestural drawings—also made of black—are shown on the top left-hand side of the image.
