Abstract (English)

"Rooted in a documentary tradition, Kakshapati’s work has focused on representing social and political transformations in Nepal. As Nepal’s newly passed constitution comes into effect, and the country continues to shape a new future, Kakshapati’s work captures new demarcations and identities that emerge in the nation-building process. Using the gallery space as an open site of experimentation and creation, Kakshapati will further develop her ‘Being Nepali’ series through inviting diverse diasporic communities into the space, combining new images with selections from the Nepal Picture Library." -- Publisher's website.
