My Studio Nails

ink, watercolor and print on tracing paper, 2016

When I was given a  studio at the University of  Baroda I found innumerable holes throughout the partition board of the studio. There were also many worn out materials and nails in the room. It was then that I realized how memories were embodied within that board, within those holes. Those holes were certainly used for the display of the numerous previous students who used to work there. Maybe their work, their thoughts, were nailed over there.
