Urban materials, thoughts, spaces, the chaotic disorder and dislocation became a thread to look at urban violence which is in public and domestic spaces. This violence is different from the violence we talk about in a war zone. This is related to everyday life, which the urban community feels and faces.
Each student used a material to talk about domestic/public/personal space and their discomfort. Their works speak of domestic violence, women laborers, the socio-political or the small things that can be disturbing. To the material they attached a word. These words then came together in a collective process and became a poem, which leads the viewer to their individual works.
The material and words are:
Drainage pipe – (Flow); Termite tree – (Akrosh), Everyday objects – (Galatfehmiya), Street food – (Gairmojudgi), Dolls/thread – (Vajood-e-waqt), Coal – (Gharshan), Pepper spray – (Suffocation), Scrap – (Atit), Crowd – (Swapna)
