Praneet Soi: Juggernaut


Over de expositie

Juggernaut, a relentless destroying force, a literal or metaphorical force regarded as unstoppable that will crush all in its path.

In Rudyard Kiplings book Kim (1901) the author makes mention of Zam-Zammah, an ancient cannon that stands outside the museum in Lahore.
Kim, the protagonist of the book, an orphaned British boy, sits on top the gun and teases his friends as they attempt climb on.
'All the Mussalmans fell of Zam Zammah a long time ago', sings out Kim to one, a muslim, and then to the other, a Hindu merchants son, ‘the Hindus fell of Zam Zammah too. The Mussalmans pushed them off '.
