Description

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum presents two of the most important installations by the Indian artist and filmmaker Amar Kanwar, whose documentaries and video installations connect historical figures with wider socio-political processes and themes.

Kanwar is notable for the complex narratives of his installations. He has taken part several times with his works in Documenta (Kassel) and has had solo shows in museums including the Tate Modern, Stedelijk Museum and Haus der Kunst. The two projects presented are “The Sovereign Forest” and “The Lightning Testimonies”, which explore notions of justice and how these are applied to individual actions, laws and public policies.“The Sovereign Forest” is a project of investigation which arose from the conflict in Odisha, a region in eastern India, in which local communities, the government and companies competed for control of the land and resources. “The Lightning Testimonies” is a multi-channel video installation of stories in which different women narrate the sexual assaults and traumatic episodes they have suffered. The work takes viewers beyond suffering to show them a space where the ability to overcome creates the potential to tranform their world.
