Reimagining the Home/Homeland: An Artistic Inquiry

This visual essay is on an installation that appropriated the architectural structure of a flood-affected home with reference to the 2018 floods of Kerala. It was made using mud bricks with niches. The work was conceived as a “process” in which viewers participated by keeping objects and written texts in the niches. Their contributions highlighted dynamics of class, gender, and cultural composition of the state and alluding to history. The image of home is extrapolated to the concept of homeland through a visual thinking process as the work progressed. The installation process concluded with the dismantling and distribution of the bricks among viewers.
