1 AAJ KA HERO! Title: AASHWASAN Medium: Stone mortar, metal structure & motor (functional) Size: 24" x 20" x 20" Year: 2009 - 2010 SANDIP PISALKAR AASHWASAN: ‘Aashwasan’ (Assurance) addresses fake promises made by politicians and exploitation of common people for their selfish motives. An example of flashy heroism this genre of politicians make promises but never keep them. The so-called-heros claiming government of the people for the people and by the people has nothing to provide in return as benefits in exchange for their exploitation.

3 Title: System Medium: Stone mortar and pestle, metal structure, motor (functional) Size : 18" x 36" x 18" Year : 2009 - 2010 SYSTEM: Interactive in nature, System tries to show how easily we get soaked into a process; it becomes embedded within us and we get incorporated within it. The entire process of rubbing one stone to other is a way to show how today’s human in spite of trying hard to get out of it cannot.

Stylistically these works actually give an impression of comic strips at the first glance but goes beyond it when considered as a spontaneous effort to pen down my theorizations, observation, my chimeras and delusions.

9 NITI: Contemporary world is a witness to the fact that ‘simultaneous working or overlapping of many nitis (principles)’ may lead to violence. Today most of the tools, loaded with lots of ambiguity tend to forget its clear motive. Unfortunately the meaningful or constructive purpose gets lost in this confusion. In ‘NITI’ the use of a traditional tool simply for separating the seeds from the cotton balls raises this contemporary issue. Title: Niti Medium : Found Objects, Neon Lights, wood, motor, sound system (Functional) Size : 47" x 47" x 10" Year : 2010

10 VIRUS: In today’s world religion has taken the form of an invisible, highly destructive virus silently dragging mankind into its clutches. The question still remains- ‘whom to blame’: the concept/ belief which influences the public or the person who influences the public by using such beliefs? ‘Virus’ is focusing on ‘Aaj ka hero’ (‘the misleading concept of religion’ ) which can influence the common public in a wrong way if misused by the selfish people. Title: Virus Medium : Wood, metal additions, pedestals Size : 72" x 10" (Each) Year : 2009 – 2010

11 CHALAK MALAK: The sculpture ‘Chalak Malak’ depicts the spirit of an ordinary worker who faces the struggles of life fearlessly. To create a sense of flabbergast a hand pulling rickshaw is fused with a motor bike, and new place has been given to all the technicalities by fitting a salon- chair in front of a chalak. While addressing a need to reduce the physical labour of these workers it involves the thought of ‘heroism’ wherein the chalak (driver) of a rickshaw can become a malak (owner) of a mobile salon to earn his humble bread.

13 Title: AAJ KA HERO Medium : Latex, artificial skins, pedestals and motors(functional) Size : 28" x 240" x 72" Year : 2009 - 2010 Set of 5 AAJ KA HERO: The concept of ‘hero’ is often manipulated for selfish ends. An ordinary person, in the disguise of sadhus, gurus has now become a ‘hero’ with blind faith of the gullible public behind him. Religion is a multi-billion industry where, instead of spirituality and faith, sleaze and sex have become the currency of trade in the hands of these self proclaimed heros. With the hollow idealism, fake promises and misleading charishma this breed of ‘Aaj ka Hero’ puts the gullible public into dilemma…. Whom to follow?...

21 Satyameva Jayate? If one wishes to lead a happy and peaceful life, one has to go back to ‘Basics’. When entangled by falsehood, treachery, corruption everywhere one has to desire, conceive, and create a new structure of the future which will embrace everything in one unity and which will one day prove to be an action against these evils like the crystal symbol of a new faith. The engraved words of the sculpture ‘Satyameva Jayate’ remind us of its relevance and imprint dire need of the belief that Truth alone triumph. Title: Satyamev Jayate?

24 PUSHPAK (BIKE) It is an amalgamation of objects which belong to two absolutely dissimilar worlds. A bike and an 18 th c. cart, though both share the same utilitarian purpose, the incongruence between them is still jarring. Not viewing them in the context of their respective time frames, here one gets to see a thoughtful blend of the two. Without letting either to overpower, this meticulously executed 'functional machine', strikes a balance between its technical and aesthetic aspect.

27 PYAU (FREEZER) Size: 84 x 24 x 24 inches Medium: Mix medium, it is interactive Year: 2008 PYAU (FREEZER) This cooling is a product of an orchestration of various objects of utility. It is not just a machine to cool water but sound combination of technical precision and a cautious selection of objects. There is a want to lend life to the objects of utility, which have been culled from the past. The fabrication of this work can be explained as a unification of ubiquitous and obsolete objects to extract them from a specific time capsule.

29 Title: HEK (Human Enemy Killer) Size: 110 x 28 x 36 inches Medium: Mix medium, it is interactive with VIDEO Year: 2008 HEK (Human Enemy Killer): My personal experience of malaria gave me the inspiration to create kinetic sculpture of a mosquito killer by blending technology and art. The historically important canon is being manipulated to have a utilitarian purpose of killing the mosquitoes thereby making the public rethink about its gory past.

32 Title: Charkha – 2 Size: 37 x 24 x 6 inches Medium: Rusted wood and Neon light, it is functional Year: 2007 CHARKHA A charkha for every Indian is surely symbolical rather iconic of the Gandhian era and its ideals. This old, worm pitted and cobweb laden piece of wood, carrying a string of neon lights, brings out the obsolete and nearly vanished sentiments of attaining the Utopian world through words like peace in the present times.

33 Dataar – 2 “Dataar 2” is a trademark ‘remix’ by Pisalkar, showcasing the artist's characteristic amal­gamation of old and new, of history and hi-tech. The piece startles and confuses - what seems familiar turns out to be made from unexpected ma­terials, prompting us to take a fresh look. History and technol­ogy are reconsidered in new contexts, giving new relevance to familiar or even obsolete products; serving, perhaps, as a warning about the importance of directing one's passion for technology into the right areas.

35 Paduka 2 "Paduka 2" is an example of the artist's technique of meshing historical objects with modern technology. The practical context and historical references remain, but the addition of hi-tech features changes observers' way of seeing the object. The reinvented objects are not designed to be useful; their objective is to get us thinking about how technol­ogy changes things. What our passion for technology has created. And what it might still do.
