What is a 100-year-life's weight in gold?


Dajikaka Gadgil


The story of Gold

The project was completed while working as part of Lokusdesign, Pune

P.N.G. Jewellers is a jewellery brand in Maharashtra, India which is synonymous with honesty and integrity. Dajikaka Gadgil was the driving force behind this family- run business, and his vision and hard work brought P.N.G. Jewellers at par with the world market.

A much loved and admired personality in Pune, the exhibition, which opened on his centenary birth year, honours his life and work.

It was designed as an audio-guided exhibition with commissioned art pieces to build an engaging story,  

The story of the purification of gold mirrors Dajikaka's trials and tribunals in life. This narrative is spatially juxtaposed with a faceted installation in the central space, and chronological events surrounding it.
