Proposals for a Memorial to Partition
Curated by Murtaza Vali
CAMP draws a series of lines between this and that exhibition.Not only between country A and country B, or horizontally between peoples or on the plane of "cultural exchanges" or "extra-national space", but vertically, or diagonally, reaching out to an actual place, to its actual power and presence.
For South Asia, it is important that our ideas do
not operate at the level of the imaginary, or
symbolic, but enter a psychogeographic reality,
a kind of "touching”.
The work is made of 9 on-site recordings of the audio guide to the Partition Museum in Amritsar, now in a spatial, ghostly, or open relation to works in this show. Does one entering the other imply the other way around? Not necessarily. But it may produce a feeling of cohabitation: on a plane of possibility and not impossibility.
CAMP at Sheher o Funn, the inaugural biennale of the city of Lahore with From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf.
Video project that takes us on new and recently rebuilt roads in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and India. Endoscopic views from the interior of the road system, and of the interfaces through which pride, money, data, climate, and vulnerability are connected to it, heighten our sense of developmental possibility, failure, and the deep ambiguity of road achievements.
‘A Passage Through Passages’ is a collaboration with anthropologists, and draws upon ethnographic and archival work in five field sites. This film is part of Roads and the Politics of Thought, a 5-year ethnographic study of road-building in South Asia.

“The Neighbour before the House” is a series of video probes into the landscape of East Jerusalem. Shot with a CCTV security camera, these images show that before and after instrumental "surveillance", there is inquisitiveness, jest, memory, desire and doubt that pervades the project of watching. In these specific times and places, camera movements and live commentary become ways in which Palestinian residents evaluate what can be seen, and speak about the nature of their distance from others.
