Belonging/s: Sites of Burning and Burial
In a creative / cultural exchange with Preethi Athreya (Chennai), Amaara will research and build a museologically inspired ‘collection’ of gestures from handling objects sourced in each of their family homes.
The research will weave three lines of enquiry:
- exploring critical questions of our attachment to the things that define our identity, our sense of place
- collecting rituals for burning and burial, calling upon other artists’ practices and South Asian perspectives
- documenting how the concept of ‘inheritance’ can build future worlds, particularly post-pandemic
