Sushma K Bahl statement:

The creative collaboration aims to facilitate a cross fertilization of divergent voices and aesthetics amongst artists of the two cultural and historically connected countries. The work the artists create during the residencies will hopefully reflect a contemporary borderless terrain of today’s networked world.

The residency program will be in a mix of structured programme and more open-ended options for reflection, relaxation and rejuvenation of the body and mind as well as an inspiration and scope for renewed creativity and expression.

Mustafa Zaman’s statement:

A workshop is a site of interactivity and multispecialty. The concept of heterotopia, by which Foucault posits heterogeneity to a particular place at a particulate time, brings us closer the idea of CrossOver seen as a conjunction of multispatiality for a band of artists from two neighbouring countries, who, for the first time, have seized the opportunity to come together as a thinking, acting, and moving group of people ready to respond to all sorts stimuli. We have devised this ad hoc site as place/spatiality with the hope of occasioning a re-orientation of our line of vision.
