The Gods Must be Crazy 2.0

H.G. Bathija


This exhibition features images of the Hindu Thaipusam festival at the Waterfall Temple in Penang, Malaysia. Bathija seeks to bring the viewer a sense of communal celebration and to explore, without judgment, the wonder of sacrificial acts. The photographs of traditional religious practices explore emotions and longings that continue to be relevant in today’s rational, interconnected world. The exhibition takes place in an auto garage, juxtaposing the ancient with the modern.
