The mixed media artwork titled, ‘Revisit: A Wardrobe’ is an artist’s attempt to celebrate a Kashmiri woman’s wardrobe in an authentic way. It is a celebration of our culture that often gets appropriated and capitalised upon. Yes, it is a political statement but it also tries to bring in a fairytale aspect that goes beyond the conflict by appreciating our scarfs, sleeves, clothes etc., which are long forgotten but still stand as symbols of our existence and resistance.
