Desmond Lazaro @ Kettle's Yard, Cambridge, UK

Through photography, sculpture, painting, performance and film, Homelands told stories of migration and resettlement in South Asia and beyond, as well as violent division and unexpected connections. The exhibition engaged with displacement and the transitory notion of home in a region marked by the repercussions of the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, as well as by contemporary migration.

 

The exhibition, curated by Devika Singh with Amy Tobin and Grace Storey, included a commission by DESMOND LAZARO working with communities in North Cambridge, as well as works by Bani Abidi, Shilpa Gupta, Sohrab Hura, Yasmin Jahan Nupur, Seher Shah, Iftikhar Dadi and Elizabeth Dadi, Munem Wasif and Zarina, and a performance by Nikhil Chopra.
