Subrato to César - Riyas Komu, on football and the space between

Check out this lovely interview with Riyas Komu, about work on exhibit right now at Gallery Maskara in Mumbai. The title signals the movement from the local players - the ones you can actually see, live, at home (like Subrata Paul, India's #1 keeper) to the heroes, who are global brands (as in Brazil's Júlio César).

When viewers enter the gallery, they are confronted by a concrete wall - squeezing through a narrow opening, they discover rows of steel balls encased in glass and wood boxes, and a television monitor, playing live broadcasts of the matches. This has got to be one of the more interesting places to catch the matches!
