Chandrakanth’s recent works are installations in mixed media which highlight the question of migration for sustenance. His works are executed using found objects from canteens and restaurants. The installation aims to probe the audience to think about the issue of hunger that many people face and conveys the message about those who are forced to migrate for essential needs; no one can understand the significance of an empty belly, better than them.
