Untitled (Xerox Machine)

2008

Metal

92 x 150 x 60 cm
Reclaiming the wreckage of an old dilapidated Xerox machine that appears to have been used to the point of its extinction, artist Sakshi Gupta appears to have prized the shell apart as though a forensic scientist, looking over the anatomical organs under the natural light of the operating theatre. The work redefines uselessness as useful; stripped of its conventional productive function, the work alludes to the impact or consequences of what, in life, is otherwise hidden from sight. Elevating the machinery off the ground and positioning its integral parts side by side, Gupta manages very resourcefully to deliver something quite beautiful back. This recent work demonstrates Gupta’s ability to scrutinize reality for opportunities for creativity, even where death and decay appear much more prevalent.
