Performance artist, cook, pool player and Bollywood actor from India, Umesh came to Huntly in 2003 to address the issue of ageing communities in rural towns.
Working with both young and old people, Umesh developed a final performance around the idea of linear narrative (time), and the dense narrative from birth to death, using lasers and sound. This was preceded by audience participation in which they represented characters from various generations and aspects of life and death. On display in the Deveron Projects' offices is an instrument made by the artist.
