Namaste – Khudahafiz

Spring 2015

Artbash First Year Scholars exhibition

The installation acts as a gateway - a membrane, boundary and barrier symbolic of the ongoing relationship between India and Pakistan, two bordering countries. The installation can be walked through and either side of the structure is covered in patterns, one side with Indian and the other Islamic representing the two nations. This sculptural installation strives to celebrate the hybridity of India and Pakistan and the cultural intricacies the two nations share whilst also depicting their political and social dynamics.
