3 - 29 September 2019 'BILDUNGSROMAN' - Areez Katki
29 new works by the artist, developed over the past eight months while he was living and working in India. The exhibition focuses on Katki’s personal heritage, specifically in relation to Zoroastrianism and the Parsi community to which his family belongs. Through his needlework based craft practice, Katki explores third-wave diaspora and the survival of Zoroastrianism, alongside his own revelations and responses to this now-powerful minority in Mumbai.
