Open Studio:19th & 20th July 2014

History happens in its own way, following its own timeline; not always do we know history as the way it takes place.

 

Deliberate efforts in erasing and re-writing history are not uncommon. Light and mundane words, images, sounds and events become precious, even heavy, when they are locked up in containers.
