Everything is Inside, 2004 by Subodh Gupta

Republic of Brown:

A few months ago, Indian artist  Subodh Gupta was  the  latest to contribute   to Absolut Vodka’s art collection. His  contribution was a 4-foot tall interpretation of the   iconic  Absolut  bottle, made using traditional utensil found in the   Indian  kitchen.

I’m a big fan of Subodh Gupta’s other work, so it was interesting to see that Absolut commissioned this piece.

Spill (2007) by Subodh Gupta, made of stainless steel and stainless steel utensils

Subodh Gupta employs many of the original techniques of French conceptualist Marcel Duchamp by elevating the ready-made into an art object. Gupta chooses signature objects of the Indian sub-continent and relocates them as art objects in monumental installations of stainless steel and tiffin-tins. Spill is an overbearing work of great scale that has at its centre a larger than life stainless steel water vessel, with many smaller steel utensils spilling over the edge like water pouring out.
