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.

OPENING EVENT:

Saturday 11 August | 1pm - 3pm

Join us on Saturday 11th August for a friendly cup of chai to celebrate the opening of Fòcas: Document, the presentation of the Pardesi Project and hear four of the exhibiting artists speak about their work.

Fòcas: Document brings together six new artists from India and Scotland who tell heartfelt stories about what connects us in today’s world. Pardesi Project is a collaboration between Fòcas Scotland and Bash Art Creative, collecting stories of migration and settling among Scotland’s South Asian communities.

Gemma Dagger will reveal the dark folk legend behind her work ‘’Thin Place,’ Hannah Laycock will discuss her tender document to her diagnosis with MS, and Indian artist Sandeep Dhopate will take us on a technicolour search, in India’s backstreets, for a new moral code to live by.

Also joining us will be members of Glasgow’s South Asian communities, who have kindly contributed their stories of life in India and Scotland to Pardesi Project.
