Gupta, who often incorporates everyday utensils in his installations says that it reminds him of his roots and essentially pays homage to his love for cooking. “Cooking has been part of my artistic practice for years. Pans are found in many of my works. It reminds those who see them of their home, their roots, their childhood,” he said in a statement released by the store.
