I believe that, because of the many ways in which information is organised and disseminated today, the seeming canon of Western art history is open to plunder by artists anywhere.

Shilpa and I met at the beginning at Palazzo Benzon. Our conversation at that time helped identify common concerns in our practices, such as the ideas of location and dislocation, visual perception, transnational belonging and an individual’s transaction with authority.

Majority of the works in the show will be new works (with a few earlier works). These works will be both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional but almost all of them will be photo based.

Yes, two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality separates the control but even within the two-dimensional practices there is a divide of control or less control if we compare the occidental and oriental history of painting especially from 16th century onwards.

Feroze Gujral and I met at the last Venice Biennale and we mutually sulked over the fact that neither Pakistan nor India had a pavilion. I whimsically floated the rather idealistic idea of a joint pavilion, and Feroze, being a remarkable doer, has actually gone ahead and made it happen.

A joint pavilion from the subcontinent at an event like Venice, which is so heavily invested in the idea of nation-states, means that it is cleverly subversive of one-dimensional ideas of geography and belonging.

I am not a photographer per se. I work from the premise of painter. Because my work is not about painterly quality, I can use other media.

Compared with the economy or any other sector, where one finds a dismal state of affairs, this is a time of great hope in the visual arts.

I think the presence of these issues in art has not been extremely overt.

We were not convinced that what we were doing [as artists] had anything to do with our lives. But we were constantly pushing the boundaries in the classroom.

Navigating one’s way through perturbing times often makes one feel like a nihilist.

I have never doubted for a moment that all cultural work is political work.

I view myself as a highly political being because every thing is interlinked with politics.
