Art from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan
Curator: Devika Singh


Kettle's Yard, Cambridge, United Kingdom

Through photography, sculpture, painting, performance and film, Homelands tells stories of migration and resettlement in South Asia and beyond, as well as violent division and unexpected connections. The exhibition engages with displacement and the transitory notion of home in a region marked by the repercussions of the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, as well as by contemporary migration. The artists explore intimate and political histories, often contesting borders, questioning common pasts and imagining new futures.

For this exhibition, the gallery lends two works by the indian artist Zarina, Wihtout Destination, 2016 et A Child’s Boat for Aylan and Ghalib, 2015, who works around the theme of the home, displacment, borders, journey abd memory with a constant reference to the notion of dislocation and cosmopolitanism.
