2 Suitcases + 44 photographs = The Suitcase Museum by Dayanita Singh. Currently on view until February 21 in the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum (formerly known as the Victoria and Albert Museum), the objects in this exhibition explore the past and its influence on the future. The work provides a unique and creative perspective of ordinary objects presented in a matter to both intrigue and challenge those lucky to view it. Take for instance the image of the pink colored tied fabric. The cloth shown is used to protect works of art. It is up to the imagination of the viewer as to what lies beneath this dyed material. The works in The Suitcase Museum are part of her publication Museum of Chance, a book of eighty-eight images relating to the passage of time.
