Abstract:
In this practice-based research the writer compares the metaphysics of the Hindu temple and the museum, and studying the role of the Hindu deity in these two contrasting settings through her artworks. By exhibiting them in a multi-sensory, and meditative environment created in the museum building, she invites the visitor to physically engage with her artworks and consciously experience the tensions between the religious and secular identities of the deity.
