  • Artwork description

    Literally meaning "clause" or "sentence" in Hindi, Urdu and Gujarati, Jumla has gained other connotations in the past six decades: false promise or exaggeration. This work articulates the essence of a political false promise: that they are loud but hollow, and how each successful lie leads to an even bigger one.
