The worst might be arguably over in New York, with the number of coronavirus cases dipping, but artist Avishek Sen is warning New Yorkers and the world how man’s relentless desire to dominate nature has led to a disturbing imbalance. At the busy Great Jones Street in New York, Aicon Gallery is showcasing the Delhi-based artist’s works in an exhibition titled, “Whoever brought me here will have to take me home”. “The title is influenced by Rumi’s poem… We are in a situation where we feel helpless. Everyday we are getting confusing news about the same thing, so it is like leaving things to someone and trusting that power will take you home, a place where you feel safe,” says Sen, 44.
