His latest show at Victoria Miro will include a large wall-mounted work consisting of 1400 hand carved elephants that disperse across a landscape of cardboard packaging mounted onto a mirror. The animals appear to move out from a splatter of black ink, intricately painted with stars and planets, while the packaging looks like a maze of rooftops viewed from above.
Harsha’s work references his local town of Mysore, where Dasara festivities involve elephant processions. It is also a place that has seen many changes in the last few decades, as the effects of globalisation bring a host of new technologies, especially in farming. Also included in this exhibition will be number of colourful paintings expanding on this theme.
