Debesh Goswami define his own work as well :
“In my work, I never tied myself to any origin in particular because of the different cultures that have been nurtured in me and continue to do so. In my performances and installations I often use my body.
For me it is no longer to find the aesthetic form but should be considered using my body as a support. This allows me to explore my presence felt in the world of dynamic research and total isolation .These experiences promote my consciousness of belonging towards universality.
This is the same project that inspires me when I use the symbolic values of the Stupa or garlands of flowers that become , by a matching game , manifestations of this universality, whatever the time or the identity of objects and statues are considered .
