6 Degrees of Separation | Odd Spaces 1

in collaboration with Khoj, Britto and Theertha

In 2008, The South Asian partners, Khoj in India, Britto in Bangladesh, Theertha in Sri Lanka and Vasl in Pakistan put up art shows in all four locations. Pakistani-Canadian artist Faisal Anwar’s project Odd Spaces connected all four art spaces in South Asia. His interactive media project was displayed for five days in conjunction with the art exhibitions curated at each location.

“Odd Spaces created a feeling of connectedness where audiences felt a tangible consciousness of the others presence. It compelled the viewer to engage and maybe interact with the participating viewer from a different location – to create a connection as well as a conflict where the subject also becomes the object on display.” – Naiza Khan
