Gul-e-Curfew: An Index of the Strange and Inconsistent Phantoms from Everywhere

Artist Book, Inject Print on Archival Paper, Text written in Collaboration with Hafsa Sayeed



Gul-e-Curfew addresses how ecologies as organisms in various contested sites respond and adapt to territorial conflicts and their environmental impact. The collection of flowers and organisms are presented in an indexical format consisting of images and text. The text provides information about the flower or the organism such as its name, classification, its life span, its anatomical characteristics and its physiological becoming. The object of the book acts as a metaphor that seeks to challenge the indexical and taxonomical arrangement of ecologies by regimes of power in contested sites.
