    About The Work

    Hardeep Pandhal’s Plebeian Archive (2015) was a multi-media installation punctuated with large scale wall drawings of Bhagat Singh, an activist who disguised himself by cutting his beard and replacing his turban with a trilby to commit violent acts of protest during the Indian independence movement. The installation included works on paper, such as this, made via conversation with Pandhal’s mother (with whom he shares a Punjabi/English language barrier) in response to censored letters and photographic scrapbooks associated with the British-Indian regiments. Palimpsests that contain seldom-explored narrative structures and conflicting opinion, these images explore the artist’s recurrent themes of displacement and acculturation.
