The Chivas Studio, 2012 Bombay Edition was held at The Grand Hyatt with a preview of Karan Johar & Shakun Batra’s Stangers In the Night, which is a short film and Rohit Bal‘s steel installations that were part of his theme called Tamaashaa.

Below: While most of the sculpture was steel, there were bits – like the baloons, that were hard plastic or soft rubber. Interesting amalgamation of materials.

Below: The piece on the extreme right was motorized – it spun like a real-world paper “phirki”. You will see a few images capturing that movement during the event at night. These day photographs are from when ShowHouse Events team was setting up the show.

Below: Weapons of media construction. There was a veritable army there. The photographers and journalists were well-behaved compared to the mad mob I usually encounter in Delhi. In many ways, Bombay is WAY more professional than Delhi’s people are.
