You Will Live In This World As A Daughter (2017-2018)
Marking the 70th anniversary of the partition of India from the UK, the British Council’s Reimagine India is a cultural exchange programme investing in creative collaborations between art and cultural organisations in England and in India.
With an award from the Arts Council, Creative Black Country and Multistory with support from the Nazar Foundation and Delhi Photo Festival commissioned 4 photographers (Uzma Mohsin, Andrea Fernandes, Jennifer Pattison and myself) to make a project about women in the Black Country and the Punjab.
This projects marks the first time that I have made a project with other people since 2011, which was then a fictional series. I chose to look at how it is being a daughter of the Punjab and made a series of photographs that move between hiding and revealing and question the visibility of girls.
Girl Gaze: Journeys Through the Punjab & the Black Country, UK brings together my project with the work of the other 3 commissioned photographers (Uzma Mohsin, Jennifer Pattison and Andrea Fernandes) and was first shown at Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi in Chandigarh from 10th to 18th March 2018.
Girlz Gaze is due to premiere in the UK in May 2019.
(A big thanks to all the women and girls involved in the project as well as my wonderful producer/translator Deepika Sharma and everyone at the organisations who commissioned the project - particularly Iona Fergusson, Parminder Dosanjh and Emma Chetcuti).
Work In Progress (Watford)
I am one of thirteen photographers currently working on All Change, which is a collaborative project documenting areas around the London Underground's final stops. I pulled Watford out of the hat, so I am currently working there to make a portraiture project. (Instagram account)
I am 1 of 209 UK based female artists who is photographing a female MP to mark the centenary of the first vote for women in the UK.
The work will be exhibited at Portcullis House, Palace of Westminster, from 14th December to February 2019. It will then travel to Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool.
