Event excerpt

Curated by Adwait Singh, the first solo exhibition of the artist in Delhi showcases works that examine the socio-political fabric of Assam using jacquard as a trope. The artist investigates both the expulsions that help maintain regional identity and the individual syncretic threads that dismantle the myth of Assamese cultural homogeneity.

In addition to paintings and installations, the exhibition includes two videos: one that provides a close-up view of interfaith spaces created during zikirs, or devotional songs, and another that features the personal account of Momiron Nessa, a woman living along the Brahmaputra River who describes the difficulties she faced in dealing with legal and bureaucratic requirements. The exhibition also includes recordings of poems written by the artist, which serve to highlight the rich and varied sounds of the Assamese language and the political context in which it is used.  These works offer visitors a chance to reflect on how art can help us better understand and respond to these complex issues.
