Jitish Kallat: Aquasaurus
This is a few years old, but isn’t a skeletal water-tanker morphing into a prehistoric creature always worth sharing?
Artist Jitish Kallat constructed this piece from steel, resin and paint as a commentary on the rapid transformation of Indian city life.
The rapid pace of India’s growth and unchecked urban development means that water is becoming increasingly scarce for millions of people. While pumps bore deeper into the ground and groundwater levels drop alarmingly, the Public Works Department provides a subsidised service to the people of the city, allowing them to buy tanker-loads of water delivered to their doorstep.
