RESISTANCE is the act of refusal. It emerges as social self-defense and interruption of an unwanted process, and challenges a reset, reboot, rethink.
‘RESISTANCE’ is an installation with a huge Dupatta hanging from the indoor balcony. Under the weight of silence and fear, there is a grasping hand of an Indian woman seeking others.
