( 2016 – ongoing ) In this series, I am working with staging the objects which will have a symbolic association with either the current scenario or with some particular landscape or being. I choose these objects and spaces from my everyday life, that are trivial things but at the same time carry a special meaning in the given context indicating like the unsaid dialogues. In my process, I experiment into miniature model making, life size structures creation and sometimes setting up the whole scenario. Then, I photograph this union of scenes. My images are the suggestion of the humour and play, which I experience while going through the process of visualisation.
Overall, the narrative splits into two chapters. Chapter one talks about the real spaces: such as the social, political and environmental. The other narrative comes from taking a ride into some imaginary spaces.
I intentionally create this division of the narrative. On one hand, I depict the situations inspired from the real life events; and on the other hand, I dream of a completely new world which has surreal and utopian characteristics with its own beauty. These ones are calm & serene. They delve into an incredible dreamlike world, like my own imagination. In short, Dialogues of an Introvert is my take on the human psyche dealing with the real world challenges and then in parallel getting out of it to pursue the unreal.
