Seher Shah’s Notes from a City Unknown is a portfolio of thirty-two screen-prints on paper, drawing on observations and reflections from New Delhi. Through poetic notations composed alongside architectural forms, the work explores the city through sites of fissure, complexity and contradiction through relationships between architectural forms and language. Shah looks to bind architectural, political and historical events to the intimate and personal, through markers of time and memory.
