Event excerpt

Babur, the first Mughal ruler in India, was fond of his gardens and frequently wrote to his governor instructing him on what to plant and where. These gardens, known as Bagh-e-Babur, were built after Babur’s invasion of Kabul in 1504 and include terraces, water channels, pools, and a marble mosque. Babur’s remains were later relocated to Kabul and his epitaph reads ‘Paradise is forever Babur Padshah’s abode’. The gardens, which were a source of solace for many, were depicted in artist Ahmadzai’s series ‘Bagh-e-Babur’.

The exhibition features compositions that resemble labyrinths or architectural floor plans. The paintings evoke a personalized reading of the gardens through the artist’s own experience of walking through them. Incomplete and therefore open-ended, these works preclude the easy closure of historical memory into the present.
