Catalogue published in conjunction with the two-part exhibition 'Half Full' by Mithu Sen held at Bose Pacia, New York and Nature Morte, New Delhi in 2007. Andrew Maerkle writes in the introduction, "Moving fluidly through different identities, as represented in her photographs, drawings and videos...Mithu explores the limits of her self, but also challenges viewers to complete the picture by stepping beyond the realm of logic or rationality and the preconceptions inherent in those thought processes." Artist biography included.
