Document brings together three Indian and three Scottish artists to make new lens-based work that explores their world as global citizens. From the experience of intimacy after a diagnosis with MS to the instinctive world of play constructed by two young girls in the isolated mists of upper Kashmir, from a search for the ‘thin places’ where, in folklore, heaven almost meets earth to a contemporary quest for moral vision, Document offers six unique perspectives on what it means to live in a connected world today, tied not just by shared histories or common markets, but by all that is essential to human experience.
Pardesi Project will be displayed alongside the exhibition. A collaboration between Fòcas Scotland and Bash Art Creative, collecting stories of migration and settling among Scotland’s South Asian communities.
