In 2010 she founded Indian Memory Project – The world’s first online visual & narrative based archive, to trace a personal history of the Indian Subcontinent through images found in family and personal archives. The project has been cited as exemplary and has pioneered an alternate method in which narratives of the world are told and understood.
In 2013, she founded The Memory Company, a consultancy that works on artistic, and curatorial projects, archives and exhibitions related to history, narratives and photography. Most recently the company curated its first international narrative and image based exhibit on historical criminal investigations from India – “The Photograph is Proof”, at the Format International Photography Festival, 2015 in UK.
I am a big believer in public art. It is an opportunity to show work to a much much larger audience and sections of society than one can curate and display to a gallery guest list or a person swinging by.
