 The artwork is from the Homeland series. I attempt to tell the story of where I live with these photos. Tales from the colonial era, the partition, and my family history. How, along with many others, my grandfather traveled to India before 1947 from Bangladesh. For him and the community, what does the land mean? With the aid of community and personal tales, I attempt to depict the timeline of shifting land identity in this piece of work.

Size: variable (approximate 5 inch x 7 inch each )

Meet the Artist

Abhijit Deb Nath
I explore the debate between materiality and abstract concepts and the relationship between social space and identity. My father's storytelling about our ancestral past reminds me that the space I grew up in didn't wholly belong to us. This conflict revolves around ownership of land, ideological space, and material space. My personal history, identity, and memories are narrated through material and space. Currently based in Bangalore, I work with a Bija community in the Sathnur village, using familiar materials to connect with my palace and origins. I interact with people, document them, and hold art workshops to understand their situation and how they deal with their physical spaces.
