Shrine Empire presents Rites Adrift, Omer Wasim’s first solo exhibition in India, curated by Anushka Rajendran. This explores the artist’s familial experiences of displacement and movement through various parts of the subcontinent, across three generations.
The exhibition emerges from a unique institutional partnership between Shrine Empire and Khoj International Artists’ Association. Khoj will advise the programs and outreach from their decades-long relationship with Khirkee during the duration of the exhibition, creating spaces for friendship and conviviality, which is an essential part of Wasim’s practice.
This project is the second chapter of a project titled Spectral Remains, which was previously presented at Colomboscope 2022, Language is Migrant, curated by Anushka Rajendran with Artistic Director, Natasha Ginwala.
