Kashmir

The artists (Sheba Chhachhi & Sonua Jabbar) statement on the photo exhibition at Senate House in University of Madras.

“Intervening in media representations of armed conflict, dominated by groups of men with guns, this installation invites the viewer to enter the private spaces of war, to hear voices normally drowned out by the clamor of contesting stereotypes— the voices of ordinary women of Kashmir. Humble materials— earth, bricks and rice evoke the domestic, within a configuration that draws on the contemplative formalism of the Mughal gardens in Kashmir.”
