Pom Poms

Pom Poms is a project that starts from an investigation into the world of ‘Indian Premiere League‘ of cricket in New Delhi. During the period of residence in the city, I tried to immerse myself in the heart of ‘IPL‘, actively attending games at the stadium, to personally experience all those inputs that the perfect machine of “cricketainement” offers, match after match, to the spectators. 
Starting from the simplicity which cheerleaders (or an idea of them) were implanted in Indian cricket, with preference given to aesthetics and winking instead of acrobatics, my work imagines an Indian antropological background, visualized through an “Indianization” of iconographical and textual of covers of essays on the American history and spirit of cheerleading practice.
