TARQ presents Saju Kunhan’s second solo show at the gallery, Home Ground.
In this exhibition Kunhan continues to explore themes of migration and displacement through his method of image transfers on teak wood. Also featured in this exhibition for the first time, are the artist’s works on paper. This body of work investigates the more personal side of Saju’s practice, representing his ancestral home and the multiple migrations undertaken by his family. Stemming from a belief that history is a collection of memories, Saju plumbs the memories of his ancestors to create works that chart his family’s past of migration, displacement, colonialism and conquest. Through his engravings on remnants of red oxide flooring from his ancestral home in Palakkad, Kerala, Saju reflects on the history of his family via the oral narratives shared with him by the previous generations of his family.
