Pardah Paradox

Pardah Paradox

Pardah paradox
screen-print on cotton voile
5ft x 3ft

Screens were traditionally used to separate women from the male folk in Indian households. This diptych is inspired by the traditional architectural lattice/jaali that was used for this segregation. From afar the pattern may appear as a mere repetion that runs through the entire fabric, that of a heterosexual couple holding hands and kissing. However, the elements on close inspection show the broad spectrum of sexualities. What might seem as a flaw in the screenprinting process is in fact deliberate.
A stone carved architectural element is transformed into fluid fabric while revealing the concealed.
