A Solo Exhibition by Tanisha Bhana

Milk for Dust, an expression of the true value that we place on things, describes the reality that every day, we sell our skills, good, services, dreams, personality ... in return for various items. Our relationship to friends, animals, people and the environment is often dependent on the nature of the trade.

Often the trade defines our relationships and we become detached from the person behind the transaction, adopting a persona for the trade.

Using the face of the ultimate trade, prostitution, as a metaphor for the faces we wear in our daily lives, Tanisha Bhana takes the viewer to the aftermath of places of recycled consumption by depicting the human form as an item for sale.
