Tulika Ladsariya’s work is a social commentary on the issues of labor and literacy faced in India. The hand-drawn cart, an often seen vehicle on the streets of Mumbai, fluidly converts itself into a home. It explores the life lived outside and the dreams in the heart of young children forced to grow up too soon.
Work Life Balance is 75” x 22” x 25” and has been constructed almost exclusively of appropriated/ found objects. The term ‘jugaad’– which literally means low cost motor vehicle and colloquially means a creative idea, or a quick workaround which has to be used because of lack of resources– is being explored by the artist.
