Outside the war zone 2004

Indo-Swiss residency, Bangalore 2004

An installation reflecting domestic violence against women/human beings where the inner elements of the body came to the surface in order to symbolize the trauma that had happened. With painful appearances, the projected incomprehensible messages convey the trauma of the act itself.The violence is symbolically mediated but it also touches the real, which cannot be symbolized.

The blood that runs through our veins, that drips from our wounds and birth canals; blood, a life force; a puzzled ever winding knot internalizes repeated violence against women in their homes….outside the war zones.
