Anxiety of the Unfamiliar I recalls Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, in which the unsuspecting protagonist of the short story wakes to find himself transformed into an insect. Gupta’s two robotic insects are painted side-by-side in an outline of muddy brown and bright yellow. Transparent in their appearance the larger of the two is constructed of a multitude of intricate limbs rooted to a robotic spine that forms the anatomic shell which holds this dissected insect together. Beside it is a smaller insect that falls from the top of the canvas and has within it an animation of acrylic figures at the crest of a mountain under a pitched flag pole wrestling with an unsettled sky.
