From India to Canada and Back to India (There is nothing I can possess which you can not take away) features new and recent work by Divya Mehra that unravels the West’s obsession with simultaneously defining and consuming the histories and identities of other cultures.
In this collection of reproduced, misclassified, staged, and stolen cultural property, Mehra deftly and playfully navigates complex networks of colonial entitlement, popular culture, art history, sacred objects, exotic adventurism, and novelty.
Her work both entices and withholds, requiring the viewer to confront their own complicated relationships to the subject matter while also directly implicating the MacKenzie itself in the fraught colonial underpinnings of ownership and display in institutional collections.
