Travel liberates the soul. It also helps broaden the mind through explorations. Presenting for viewers her visual diary, artist Archana Hande attempts to uncover themes of hybridity, migration and exchange. At her latest show in Mumbai, a collection of mixed-media works, narrates Hande’s travel adventures. From the Salt-Silk Route that runs through parts of India, Pakistan, Nepal and Tibet, to Australia’s Golden Feral Trail, the series of photographs, videos, watercolours and textiles takes viewers on a trip around the world.
