Lore and Other Convergences (2006)

Lore and Other Convergences (2006) is a collaborative performance binding diverging stories into a hand-made 200 foot long rope. I collaborated with 13 international artists under the guidance of New York artists Janine Antoni and Melissa Martin.. The concept was to contribute materials from the archive of our lives to make rope and explore meaning through stories and artefacts. I contributed a decade’s worth of press coverage on Desh Pardesh and the South Asian Visual Arts Collective. The rope was performed in the streets of London, UK and then in a gallery with audience members.

Lore and Other Convergences (2006) featured: Alinah Azadeh, Lisa Bradley, Helena Bryant, Amanda Couch, Christine de Leon, Raimi Gbadamosi, Rachel Kalpana James, Veronique Maria, Monica Miranda, Owen Parry, Patricia Scanlon, Shabnam Shabazi, Lorna Stewart, and Fiona Wright.
