Now online is the next article published as part of Paul Boyé’s un Extended Editor-in-Residence!
Julia Rose Bak has written a review of Quishile Charan and Zaiba Khan’s exhibition ‘Angna Mein’ at West Space.
Arriving at ‘Angna Mein’, Indo-Fijian artists Quishile Charan and Zaiba Khan generously introduce us to their inherited craft-based practices. Described as “a seeding of memories,” both Charan and Khan offer tender renditions of the handicrafts passed down from their grandmothers; Khan’s dadi and Charan’s aaji. In these works we are introduced to the passing down of narratives, histories, and legacies, with Khan and Charan sharing the cultural practices inherited through the hands and spirits of their elders and ancestors.
un Projects’ Editor-in-Residence Program is supported by the City of Yarra.
The next article for the KINGS + un Projects Emerging Writers Program is now live on un Extended!
I liken the performers’ apathetic pottering to a tongue-in-cheek mimicry of the shackles of capitalist regime.

These items are mindlessly consumed and discarded haphazardly throughout the gallery, gradually forming an archive of bodily trace and detritus.
This text was commissioned through the Emerging Writers’ Program. An annual collaborative project, from KINGS and un Projects.
