Gauri Gill. Traces

Museum Tinguely

13 Jun 201801 Nov 2018

Gauri Gill’s practice is complex because it contains several lines of pursuit. These include an almost two decade long engagement with marginalised communities in rural Rajasthan called Notes from the Desert—this ongoing archive contains series such as “The Mark on the Wall”, “Traces”, “Jannat”, “Balika Mela”, “Birth Series” and “Ruined Rainbow”.
“Traces” presents burial sites composed of stones, clay fragments, hand inscribed gravestones or personal items. A place is marked, memory is cultivated, with the utmost humbleness. In the awareness that every process of becoming will also mean decay, her images enter into dialogue with the ‘dance of death’.
