This performance examines how surveillance, essentially a practice of social intervention, becomes a channel in inducing violence, trauma, hardship and socio-economic suffering which causes individuals to adjust their behaviour and routines to save themselves from harassment. In this piece, the set up is such that the performers, placed at the entrance, frisk viewers who enter the gallery. The performers will be dressed in casual ensembles so that they are not distinguished by their appearance.
This piece of performance is a 6-hour long performance that examines the bond between body, time, memory, and objects. The piece is performed at night along with sheepskin and two clocks, where the intimacy and relation between the time frames talk about the absurdity of the perception of time when understood from the perspective of memory.
These works are in collaboration and interventions in public spaces with Live Art Practice-LAP, where artistic inquiry into performance seeks to understand the epistemological engagement of processes, legitimization of alternative amative, sabotage of performance practices, documentation, individual and collaborative actions in public and indoor spaces. These performances have been done in Barakhamba monument, Jamia Millia Islamia, Shaheen Bagh, Malcha Mahal and Morni Hills.
