A comparative study of Ananda Moy Banerji’s career shows the recurrence of specific motifs that aid in establishing a continued lore. In the Performer series, for instance, there is always a pair of individuals in different stances of motion, and there is a line circling their being, like the proverbial thread of destiny. The performers in this diptych swirl to a rhythm that has been commenced by an invisible conductor, who also controls the musical harmony in nature, depicted through a rolling landscape of hills and meadows in the background watched over by the moon.
