Paintings created with cut-up contemporary Indian saris. Folded Language embraces aspects of India’s trade, colonialism and commerce in which pattern migration is both exploited and celebrate; and environmentally synthetic materials replace traditional cottons and silks.
From a political perspective, pattern migration acts as a metaphor for economic worker migration as textile production centers continually shift in the world.
Created for a site specific installation for the Kochi-Muziris Biennale Collateral Projects 2016. Exhibited in "Artist: The Public Intellectual" curated by Tanya Abraham; sponsored by Edgar Pinto, Kashi Art Gallery.
