Mahatma in Me by Vibhor Sogani

The travel exhibition ‘Mahatma in Me’ by Vibhor Sogani is tribute to Mahatma Gandhi. The exhibition is an attempt to showcase Gandhi’s values of peace, equality and non-violence through stainless steel installations. Subtle images with a few impressions of his thoughts are expressed in reflective steel, making us pause to reflect for a moment on the Mahatma within all of us. ‘Mahamta in Me’ was supported by both, the Australian and Indian Government, and was a huge success globally within the art domain. In 2017, the exhibition travelled to Zimbabwe to celebrate 70 years for India’s independence. Currently the works are in Tanzania, to be inaugurated in the National Museum on 6th December. Recipient of many honours, Vibhor has also been awarded ‘Indian Art Icon of the Year 2014’ in Singapore. Vibhor has been recently nominated by the Government as a member of governing body of the India Design Council. One of his prominent works is the 40 feet high creation in steel, ‘SPROUTS’, installed in the 6 acres of greens which lies between the flyovers at AIIMS crossing, Delhi. He has recently executed a 30 feet high installation, ‘Kalpavriksha – the wish fulfilling tree’ in Ahmedabad. It is perhaps the largest public art installation of the state.
