Description

The painting hides number of ironies and symbols. Many of them are considered the tools of empowerment such as a phone, a book, cooking gas; with that I also want to bring attention to the question that what is empowerment after all? Are bits and pieces of empowering tools enough to challenge the labour markets and Idea of economic growth, which is structurally a gendered and patriarchal system. In today’s time one is still advocating for recognition of their tiring, endless work as crucial to the economic growth. Wheelchair is symbolic to disability as a social construct; rest of the objects trace their existence in Indian society and life of homemaker. The glorified idea of women as best multitaskers has done them unimaginable harm.
