TIGER TIGER is part of a series on animals and their implied symbolic narrative appropriated politically and socially. This series studies the perception of people and conjures up new imaginaries as form is divested of its power by dematerializing it via the act of weaving a narrative shorn of the power, panache, swagger associated with the cultural, symbolic or naturalized form. - Nisha Mathew Ghosh

TIGER TIGER - Nisha Mathew Ghosh 3

 

Instead of a study in delicacy and a fliƫng materiality, In lightness and a disappearance rather than the presence makes reference to a dissipating power of the symbol when defaced with a barrage of socio-political machinations, and secondly, a dematerialization reminiscent of an ecological catastrophe as tiger populations dwindle to their last numbers.

Architecture in the labyrinth of South Asian and  Southeast Asian culture. an article, by NANDINI BISWAS

Rapport in 1969 had stated that “The primary determinants of indigenous architecture of any  place are the culture and climate of that place.” The word culture derived from the Latin word  ‘colore’ which means to tend to the earth and mature, blend in and nurture.
