The Adiganga is a canal which pierces through the city of Kolkata and meets the sacred river Ganga at Hooghly. During the pre-independent phase, the canal has played a major role in the existence and development of the city. Today, it has been reduced to a sewer.
The intervention attempts to re-kindle the spirit of the canal by incorporating it into the daily lives of the local communities. The entire canal has been characterised into three stretches and each image represents how the re-animated Adiganga would locally respond to its surroundings.
