The photograph shows parts of a gallery wall, pipe, radiator, and railing — all white — and part of a black pipe. Black vinyl letters are installed directly onto the white surfaces, 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. In the bottom right are the words “shake,” “quiverrr,” “neverconquer,” and “neverconcur.”
