Celebrated Indian artist Navjot Altaf uses photography and videos in her installation "lacunaintestimony" in an attempt to listen to the testimonies of those affected in communal riots in India’s Gujarat State in 2002.
Her video raises questions about whether one can enumerate and describe often opaque and confounding events and how events in India are relevant to violence and oppression throughout the world.
Navjot Altaf’s video installations reflect her interest in a broad range of art media, societal issues and social unrest. She lives and works in Mumbai, India.
