L.N. Tallur’s complex sculptural works reference subjects as wide-ranging as Hindu iconography, popular culture, and the abject poverty of the Indian countryside, as well as broader political and societal issues, such as the nature of value and the globalized economy. Tallur studied art and museum studies, and his sculptures frequently appropriate classical Indian works of art or reference museum displays and the institutional presentation of objects, such as his series of reproductions of 19th-century vitrines. In Untitled (2007), Tallur presents a hospital bed with battered inflatable mattresses piled on top and covered in black latex rubber and silicon; the beds inflate and deflate like lungs, suggesting the toxicity and hardships of labor conditions.
