Introduction

An encounter between East and West, a temporal and cultural dialogue which spans traditions manifests itself between the work of Julian Schnabel and Jitish Kallat. The first expresses himself on pre-existing photographic images of Shiva, the Hindu deity who represents both the destruction of the world, but also its preservation and regeneration, integrating his image with literary, historical and musical references from the Western tradition. The second reconstitutes the many facets of life as manifested in a mega-city, interlacing several autobiographical, art-historical, political and celestial references.
