In Past Modern, the Walker's retrospective of The Singh Twins' work, you can enjoy a portrait of Princess Diana, Hero to Zero (2002), and a picture of the Beckhams as the new Royal Family, as well as Nineteen Eighty Four (1998). The latter captures the violent storming of the Golden Temple in Amritsar 21 years ago by Indian troops.
In addition, the show features a series of recent paintings called The Art of Love, in which the twins update an Indian tradition that sees human relationships as possessing some greater cultural significance. For example, Some Like it Hot (2003) transports a 17th-century heroine into the present day, where the woman's fate is to be a fan of Mel Gibson.
