In this exhibition, the artist transforms 24 Jor Bagh into a series of personal spaces that encapsulate her memories of home. She uses varied media such as photography, drawing, sculpture, textiles and sound, to reflect upon personal and familial histories of migration. Her work is a unique assemblage of intimate moments, poetry and personal objects that were passed on from one generation to the other. Remen is inspired by architecture and constructs complex monochromatic, performance-based montages that are significantly drawn from the aesthetics of theatre. She meticulously layers photographs and drawings on translucent sheets of gateway or mulmul, that capture a fleeting moment in time. The figures are staged and sometimes in transition, evoking a sense of mystery as well as nostalgia. The upcoming exhibition with Reha Sodhi as the curatorial advisor will include new works by the artist.
“The exhibition is a poignant chronicle of the artist's life that interweaves personal archives, notions of home and memory. Her work is a unique assemblage of intimate moments, poetry and personal objects that were passed on from one generation to the other.” – Reha Sodhi, Curatorial Advisor
