Work: Ongoing exhibition: Crossings @NUS Museum
Crossings is a 9-month solo exhibition collab with NUS Museum that runs from March-November 2018. It is a four-part exhibition of my research from 2014-2018 that spans stories of lived and inherited migration of individuals from different generations and backgrounds in Pakistan, Hong Kong and Singapore. Through a process that begins with interviews and continues with a formal interrogation of the image and voice as document, ideas of agency, relationships and nation implicit to moving between places of home are elaborated. The first iteration comprises a photographic work "you think it over slowly, slowly choose ...“ (2018), which questions immobility imposed through nation formation and a projection installation "And this is the lady and her pond” (2015-2018) that juxtaposes stories of an imagined homeland, lived trauma and family lore.
The exhibition is located in the Archaeology Library of the museum, putting my works in context and in conversation with the excavated artefacts and shards in the space.
