I use my body as the subject and he object of a scene in which the contradictory element of cow dung are ritualistically played out in an urban context. 'Pure' is about a relationship between belief and ritual. In India cow dung has contradictory connotations; within spiritual belief it assumes a position of the cleanser/atoner whilst also having day to day associations with waste and the defiler.
