‘The Lay of the Land’ is a phrase with origins in cartography but has expanded to mean the way things are in a specific informal cultural context. The intent behind this exhibition is an exercise at surveying disjuncture through aesthetic projects that poke holes into geo-political imaginations of South Asia from Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India. The show looks at charting individual works that are subjective reflections and critiques of social contexts, to reveal an alternative cartography of South Asia, consisting of lived realities that would reveal political borderlines and maps as empty constructs and inadequate representations of experiences. This project is conceived as an open-ended, ongoing dialogue and is not absolute or complete. The narrative of the exhibition is self-admittedly, a work in progress towards charting lived experiences.
