Like A Groundnut is a performative installation based on Kadalekai Parise, a peanut festival celebrated in Bangalore. It is a project where the creation process is as important as the final outcome. It involved experimenting with material and techniques, using clay as a medium, in the production of a large pile of groundnut models – a strenuous effort that demands a lot of time. The clay groundnuts are life-like and challenge our perception of the organic, synthetic, real and illusion.
