This work of art titled Agni II is shaped like a ballistic missile scooped out of a tightly packed body of books. Even the books are carefully chosen such that the titles satirically approach the subject of war. In fact, the book-cover visible in front reads ‘Don’t Look Down’, an oblique warning to not see the misshapen aftermath of destruction.

“The thought is to present the ominous idea of controlled annihilation and juxtapose its mindlessness with the concept of knowledge and cumulative cultural expression stored in the tomes,” says Biju Joze.
