Me in a Box

Performance Art

Performance art that encompasses the codes of socio-political, ethnic and training background to manifest the identity as artist on a new international platform. It signified the artist I was in the beginning of academic year in Goldsmiths, University of London. ‘Me’ wearing Indian ethnic wear with an extra-long extension of hair signified the baggage of tradition I carried. Facial expression of melancholy and helplessness was the heaviness of personal baggage that curtailed my freedom. The tiny black box used as a prop to store tears signified a secret place where I could hide and lock my emotions to revisit only when required.
