Soghra Khurasani’s Cratered Fiction
Hear the word ‘crater’ and the first thing you think of is probably the moon and its surface. But artist Soghra Khurasani, in her second solo show at Tarq, imagines them in beautiful landscapes. Dominated by shades of red, each artwork – woodcut prints on paper – has its own story to tell.
A collaborative project between Clark House Initiative Bombay and Tarq, Cratered Fiction is curated by Sumesh Sharma. “Khurasani presents a relay of landscapes that urge a catharsis that can come about by allowing women to be heard in equal voices… [it is] a fictional response to atrocities that she has not witnessed but imagined in courageous empathy,” he says about the works on display.

Cratered Fiction is on display at Tarq, Mumbai (F35/36, Dhanraj Mahal, C.S.M. Marg, Apollo Bunder, Colaba) until January 16, 2016.
