Using imagine technologies to meditate on what it means to witness from afar, Sunil Sanzgiri's work highlights the solidarity that developed between India and Africa during the 1960s and 1970s. Sanzgiri's first solo museum exhibition pairs the film with a 16 mm projection and new sculptural work. Modeled on bamboo structures seen across South Asia, the assemblage features family photos. 3D renderings, anti-colonial publications, and images of water and red clay soil from Goa that are drawn from his research.
