Making Space by WOLF
Sakshi Gallery is delighted to present the exhibition Meet me in the Garden by WOLF, in collaboration with Baro Market.
Note from the WOLF
In looking for a safe place to have conversations, a garden seemed apt, and when we stumbled upon Rumi's line, "Somewhere beyond right and
wrong there is a garden, I will meet you there", we knew where we were going...We exist in a time where there is blatant vilification of the 'Other' : there is fear, and liberties depend on your surname. If we stayed silent the beast would come back to bite us.Making our way through charbagh gardens: dissecting them, deconstructing them, and dreaming within them - we strive for a peaceful coexistence. The gardens were brought by the Mughals as secured spaces for leisure, pleasure, poetry and politics; we too use its beauty to retell their stories. A garden in bloom - so we can speak in flowers.
