The Sprawl is Louder, Louder and Louder. Public Performance, 2013, Pandav Nagar, East Delhi

The performance was an action of dragging a 100 meters long and 1000kg heavy Rope in the narrow lanes of Pandav Nagar and Ganesh Nagar in East Delhi. Located across Yamuna river, Pandav Nagar and Ganesh Nagar is mostly inhabited by migrant labourers, students and struggling artists. Pulling a rope was a labour-intensive process, through which we accessed the narrow lanes, impromptu architecture, wire meshworks and one-room factories spread across these colonies. It introduced joiners and passer-bys to the visuals, sound and smell of these lanes. It was a celebration; a long rope with a not-to-be-easily-seen end and a very far beginning, attached itself to many associations, narratives and rumours about the meaning, purpose or context of the action of puling.
