The Christopher Ondaatje South Asian Gallery

Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto 2000
A large-scale multimedia installation drawing parallels between the work of contemporary artists and art and artifacts on display in the Christopher Ondaatje Gallery of South Asian Art and Artifacts at the Royal Ontario Museum.

Researched, Written and Directed by Srinivas Krishna

“Central to the dynamic experience of this room is a novel Object Theatre. As filmed by acclaimed Canadian director, Srinivas Krishna, an audio-visual commentary is provided on several of the artifacts displayed, given by people from a wide range of ethnic, religious and professional backgrounds. Several times each hour, the room’s ambient lighting dims and a focus object is illuminated, as the narrator appears on a large video screen and provides an individual interpretation of the meaning of that object in a modern, Canadian context.”  — ROM Website
