'the sparrow is sorry for the peacock at the burden of its tail'

Selected works from my graduate show at the Royal College of Art. The works are based on 'Ayodhya Pati Ram', a Hindu mythological print that was hanging on the wall of my grandfathers house in Leicester. Significantly, the print originates from the period of the British Raj and of interest to me is the embedded colonial and nationalist codes. With the works I am playing with notions of memory, absence and the slipperiness of the visual codes that are bearers of tradition and identity formers.
