Photographic documentation of performance
Duration: 8 hours, 4 hours each day
Dhaka Art Summit 2016, Dhaka, Bangladesh


The performance #MakeinIndia’ was an “act of resistance through a black Dalit body to draw attention to historical and current injustice. My body is a site for the powerless, the untouchable, and the unspeakable. My performance will attempt to evoke pain, shame, power, and fear. I carry the bodies of Dalit grandfathers who were used as cows/beasts of burden in the fields and killed. I question collective memory and knowledge systems.”
