Installation view of "Pigeonhole" by Priyanka Dasgupta and Chad Marshall

PRIYANKA DASGUPTA AND CHAD MARSHALL 

The work (Pigeonhole: The Life and Work of Bobby Alam) talks to a specific history of Bengali’s passing as Black, but the installation itself and the way that it interacts with the viewer speaks to a much larger context of how we all pass in various different ways, in order to survive within the impositions that are placed upon our bodies on a day-to-day basis.

PRIYANKA DASGUPTA AND CHAD MARSHALL 

The collaborative practice of Priyanka Dasgupta and Chad Marshall redefines the visual experience as a physical, experiential one, through the medium of immersive, interactive installation. It is an inter-discursive endeavour located in the gaps between history and storytelling, and draws from archival texts, sociological conventions, oral histories, postmodern theory and postcolonial studies.
