This piece is a live-art and Installation work, concerned with the complex web of workings of desire, morality, and anxiety in our society. Jha sees Performance as a potent release, to reclaim ownership of one’s own body, time and space. Drawing upon personal narrative, Memory, dream and the every day the artist enter into the dialogue with the politics of sexuality.(aspiration and seduction), identity politics (existential questions), and social politics (religion and morality our coding), in his attempts to achieve a future that is layered with alternative realities.

Body, Space & Structure of anxiety

The most prominent installations in this show are those of Murai Jha, using Art Povera and Fluxus as a trigger he collects urban debris, an abandoned metal grill, cage, bricks, wooden tree stump and poles etc. Jha celebrated labor and his own body. Recently he performed at 1Shanthiroad exploring the multiple spaces of the studio. He moved around the edgy corners and terrace of 1Shanthiroad in the nude, interacting with found objects and spaces. The audience followed him like a Piped Piper as he surprised them in every corner.
