A monstrous reminder of human’s endless desire, lechery and overconsumption, Ravi Kashi’s work titled ‘A Thousand Desires’ brings forth extreme views. You either love it, or you hate it. But this massive collection of a thousand tongues is just impossible to ignore.
According to Ravi, tongue is an embodiment of desire: a desire to eat, a desire to consume. Desires are insatiable; they do not vanish after one cycle; they keep rising again and again like waves in a sea. ‘A thousand desires’ is a visual metaphor for this unresolved position, as though each tongue represents a tiny desire.
