From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf is the result of dialogue, friendship, image making and exchange between the Mumbai-based collaborative studio CAMP and sailors from Kutch, Sindh, Baluchistan and Southern Iran, working in the wharfs of Sharjah and Dubai.


Commissioned for the Sharjah Biennial 11, Gulf to Gulf to Gulf was four years in the making. CAMP follows the sailors on their voyages as they take a variety of cargoes from hospital equipment to goats, from the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden, to the Somali coast and back again. The film is set to a soundtrack of Bollywood, Pakistani and religious songs chosen by the sailors themselves.

The film will be introduced by Professor Edward Simpson of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) who has written about the seafarers of Kutch and collaborated with CAMP on their work.

Part of Mobile Horizons a series of events in dialogue with Sea Change, curated by the Tate Gallery’s Nada Raza.
