Zarina in "Homelands: Art from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan"

Zarina, detail of Atlas of My World, 2001, portfolio of six woodcuts with Urdu text printed in black on Kozo paper.

Zarina’s Atlas of My World will be featured in “Homelands: Art From Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan” at Kettle's Yard at the University of Cambridge.


Through photography, sculpture, painting, performance and film, “Homelands” tells stories of migration and resettlement in South Asia and beyond, as well as violent division and unexpected connections. The exhibition engages with displacement and the transitory notion of home in a region marked by the repercussions of the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, as well as by contemporary migration. The artists explore intimate and political histories, often contesting borders, questioning common pasts and imagining new futures.
