As a multidisciplinary artist, I have always wanted to expand my work beyond my home country, India. My work revolves around exploring family histories, diaspora and material memories. Creating ‘Dhaaga’ has been incredibly personal to me as it shows the process of my memories associated with the objects I brought along with me to England from India.
These objects belong to my grandmother, my mother and my childhood years. Having never lived outside of India before, my project explores a beautiful relationship and connection between nostalgia and memories by the means of these objects. The feeling of homeliness, a sense of belonging and how I made myself feel at home. My effort is to eventually start researching and creating a project to pay tribute to the lives lost in the partition of 1947. As a multimedia artist, my current area of work also tries to explore the future of photo archives, their digitisation and conservation.
