Girjesh Kumar Singh creates this work with pieces of broken walls: brick with mortar attached. He succeeds in personifying the mundane rubble with equal measure of poetry, philosophy and aesthetics into a relevant narration of contemporary reality. Addressing the issues of identity and migration, the artist feels that we all belong to some construction and even though at the physical level there is a migration taking place, we do not really migrate.
