LOC - LINE OF CONTROL

Line of Control is a reference to theIndian-Pakastani border of military control at the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir. (You should also check out the movie LOC, dealing with the same subject)

New Delhi-based artist Subodh Gupta’s sculptural installation titled Line of Control took seven days to install and deals directly with the use of atomic weapons.Gupta says “In 1999 I made the first drawing of a mushroom cloud when India and Pakistan were on the brink of a nuclear war. They were having conversations like how many people were going to die if India used its nuclear power. It chilled my heart.”

LOC is currently on display at Kiran Nadar Museum of Art in Saketh.
