paradise Lost is a documentary video installation. The work shows short conversation sequences in which artists, architects, historians, and writers tell of their memories of the Partition of the Indian Subcontinent in 1947. Projected onto a pedestal, hands outline surveys and floor plans. An expansive wall projection shows a monitor, on which a street view is put together in Photoshop. The author Aamer Hussein gives comments in a voice- over.
paradise Lost is part of the HOME Project. HOME was realised with the support of the Netherlands Foundation of Visual Arts, Design and Architecture, Sharjah Art Foundation, and Green Cardamom, London.
