we met in front of the akshardham temple, the famous religio-tourist site that dominates the land with its carefully manicured monstrosity. the site is uncer ecological and cultural dispute with issues of river bed development, displacement and ecological violation stopping us from celebrating the alleged beauty of the temple a the commonwealth games village self imposing itself nearby
about a kilometer away from the the temple we descended upon the edges of the farm lands
Jenson's performance involved acts of drawing ..digging sculpting arranging destroying...searching and burying...
the farmlands near akshardham falls right in the middle of our blindspot..a neglect that allows the state and the corporates to overtake these sites causing great cultural and ecological damage to the figure of an imagined city called delhi
