Statement

 

         Artist Statement

         My work  is a study of  relationship  between a found object and the emotion it evokes, leading to narratives in a different space. My specific interest lies in the deconstruction and re-framing of vernacular photographs. In working with these I have found how essentially similar family structures are across cultures. Family albums have disappeared with the advent of digital photography; these fragile prints inadvertently document perhaps the most important bits and pieces of our collective past. I explore this participation by engaging the community, treating them not simply as subject matter but also as  involved individuals in this process; working with their explicit consent.  

 

          The ensuing dialogue, essentially calls on a basic human need to connect and place ourselves within the fabric of a community. This would inform my work at a new level of decoding The idea is to negate the overwhelming sense of nostalgia, that old Photographs often evoke, slivers of memories tantalizing but elusive. I manipulate these Photographs by enhancing the physical wear and tear which denotes the element of time as well as playing on the idea of universality, by inducing a false sense of ownership in the Viewer. However my main focus is not just the exploration of family photographs: Revisiting archives of these photographs often makes one wonder about their origin and stories behind these forgotten narratives, and how much they have changed with the passage of time. Time plays a fundamental role in wearing down these memories of our experiences, they diverge, they mould, evolve or dissipate- such is the play of time. Our memories deceive us, pliable and ever evolving. We are left with fragments of truth, distorting records of our making. For me the process of translating that found image onto canvas and then to deconstruct it to a mere semblance of what the visual initially was, is very important.

          

           My practice is double faceted ,being part of an artist run collective that primarily focuses on public art projects , called Awami-Public- Art collective .The AAC:  focuses on means to create a public discourse about many topics ranging from rapid urbanization of the city to the themes of violence in the name of religion. One of the core objectives of the collective is to increase and initiate public discourse; Our recent project  called “Black Spring”   in  March 2016, was  in collaboration with Royal College of Arts, these site specific projects have allowed me to  incorporate the viewer as an active subject in my practice.
