Chapter 013|Sarees, Spaces and the memories that bind them.
The saree enwraps the journey of transgender womanhood as it is experiences across all histories, traditions and identities.
This art installation and participative art by us uses the symbolic potential of the saree to drape new line across the titles, names and narratives given to the transgender community.
This installation explores the personal spaces and the comfort, assurance and memories of bodies wrapped in sarees as they move through the world. It unfolds and reveals the true nature of this beautiful drape. It unfurls the countless stories that the mainstream media chooses to erase.
It questions our idea of what shapes the feminine and the masculine. In many ways , like a flag that pledges our voice to the movement, the saree has become one of the symbols of the Transgender community's choice, independence and wearable art.
