Harsha Durugadda India, b. 1989

“I have been looking into the mechanics of an hourglass. The more I look into it I seem to draw more similarities in how a seed germinates which I believe can also be a measure of time. 'Yuga' in Sanskrit refers to either a long period or the union of two things. I am sintering both the meanings to form a new understanding.” 

Harsha Durugadda’s multidisciplinary practice includes sculpture, performance, installations, and sound. The artist encourages the audience to physically engage with his works in which found objects such as metal, stone, wood, and automobile tyres are often used. Durugadda pairs together atypical and unexpected objects and forms, pushing the boundaries of the identifiable creating works that are dynamic and enigmatic.
