I fell for a building
• Performance, 2016

• Performed during Artel Residency, Tifa Working Studios, Pune, India
• I fell for a building is an embodiment of artist's journey of displacement and its uncertainty every step of the way. During the performance the surface of an un/stable century old building is scaled, while the artist is connected to the structure with a harness and a black rope. By walking on the margin of this crumbling old facade, a line drawing is made on the face of the building using white rope as the material. Throughout this process, the artist unwinds the tangled rope, maintains a balance to prevent herself from falling, maps every step of her way and navigates a familiar yet unfamiliar space.
