ध्यान से देखो

‘ध्यान से देखो’ (Dhyaan se Dekho, Look with care) explores and depicts the otherness the women in my family have felt. The title chosen is a command. I am asking the audience to look with care because of not only the sensitivity of the subject but also the lack of care Indian women have faced. Look with care is both a command and a plea, for you to take your time with the work and acknowledge the historical and cultural signifiers. In this series I use a combination of photography and collage to re-contextualize meaning. I use these mediums as tools to aid me in reconciling how I would have wished to be perceived, rather than those that have been projected onto me.
