Base Residency Entry Point: Ankita Sharma

dhoka/Betrayal/ entangles Hindu goddess Kali’s ultimate power and destruction with present-day authoritarianism and religious violence, using myth to unpack how Hinduism has been shaped into propaganda for ethno-nationalism by Western influence. Tracing Kali’s deification, dhoka accompanies her transformation into a colonized, fetishized, destructive image that upholds violence with her bloodied tongue. The work lives at the fringes of reality, letting the epic and human dance together: a physical look at how worship can distort what something stands for and how worship can save.
