Exploring Spaces through Existence, 2015
Series of 5 digital photographs
Edition of 15
150.00 € (Minimum Donation Amount)
Exploring Spaces through Existence, conceived in 2015 in Surat India, is a series of performative photographs that deal with the unsettling experience of being unwanted within the confines of a social space. Each image captures a human form left abandoned or scattered across diverse locales within an empty city. The deliberate placement of these solitary figures reflects a stark commentary on societal neglect, isolation, and displacement experienced by those who find themselves on the fringes of acceptance.
The photographs transcend mere visual documentation, serving as a visceral exploration of the emotional landscapes inhabited by those deemed unwanted. The city, portrayed as an unfamiliar and indifferent backdrop, becomes a metaphor for the broader social fabric that often overlooks or discards individuals. The human form as the protagonist imbues the series with a universal quality, inviting one to reflect on one’s relationships with society and the consequences of societal exclusion.
In contemporary times of raging violence on civilians in Gaza, Exploring Spaces through Existence emerges to confront the visceral realities of abandonment and the complex interplay between individuals and the societies they inhabit.
