The title of the exhibition refers to a series of drawings by the same title on view at the artist’s current exhibition at The Drawing Center in New York. A set of seven drawings here comprise its second part, Canto II. Another shared aspect between the two exhibitions is that both contain works made based on a series of found slides depicting a mosque from the Sultanate period in India, currently in ruins. In this way, the two exhibitions maintain more of a dialogue than a continuity, informing each other like the different sections of a canto in a long poem.
