Midhun’s works titled “There Are Stories About Home/Homes” is quite abstract. Rather than being grounded into identifiable and permanent space, it carries many meanings. It belongs in the realm of political, historical, geographical, social and emotional and as well as inner emotional self. It is a kind of mysterious space underpinned with the wildest longing and fears. This series of work is the depiction of the same.
