TAMANG HISTORY, MEMORY AND IDENTITY

by wowmagazine

At Siddharth Art Gallery, Babar Mahal, artist Subas Tamang draws the aching past of his ancestors through a solo exhibition titled ‘History, Memory, Identity’. An awardee of the Himalayan Light Art Scholarship, Subas’s art illuminates the misinterpreted Tamang community and their struggle for identity. Subas creates on Nepali paper and his work talks about the struggles of his community and what it means to be exploited and unrecognised. Subas has drawn on Tamang aesthetics in his art. For example, he has used ‘Ko Ko Mhendo’, a sacred flower also known as the ‘heart flower’. The flower paints the resistance and strengths of the community against oppression, exploitation and fight with the rulers and state authorities. The print making artist’s exhibition was on display from September 10-28.
