Elsa’s Annunciation

The skin of an Indian cow has been decorated with Arabic / Persian lettering. The calligraphic signs, however and similar to Forouhar’s “Written Room” and “Bodyletter“, have no meaning whatsoever and are completely nonsensical. The sacred animal wears them with ease, thereby embodying the relaxed symbiosis of live-and-let-live between the two great religions that have long divided Indian society. This work was created within the scope of a workshop organized  in Mumbai by the artists’ network Khoj in collaboration with Indian and international artists. Susann Wintsch
