looking at the monuments – posted 11/13/14 in Delhi

I am still looking with Nasreen, though her eyes sometime allude me because it is hard to look at the space and not be seduced by the forms and scale and monumental qualities. The monuments have an “oppressive” quality as well, being built on the backs of Indians by the Mughal conquerers. They are also the only relatively clean and open spaces that I can feel comfortable walking around in, other than Sankriti. I am looking for a sense of openness and transparency with Nasreen. These are images from the Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb.

  1. Sherri, I love how Nasreen lures you on! She intrigues you, and then you are leading me into your realms. It’s a wild goose chase! Good luck with your accumulations of ideas, and depth of your study. Enjoy! Love, Wendy PS it’s fun also to vicariously enjoy crazy lovable India. PPS we have our sights on UK in April with Tsoknyi.
