Save the Date: 19th November | A Performance by Sarah Naqvi


TARQ is delighted to announce a performance by Sarah Naqvi. This performance, titled When a name is laid to rest by force, where lies its burial ground, looks at autocratic developments through the lens of poetry and voice. Using the body as a vehicle, the artist references ideas of faith, displacement, and labour against an aural background of the confluence of rivers. 

This performance will be followed by a conversation with the artist and Hena Kapadia. The exhibition catalogue, featuring an essay by the Curatorial Advisor Shaunak Mahbubani, will also be available to purchase at this event.

Sarah Naqvi’s first solo show, how many songs in a single note? includes video installations, tapestry, drawings, paintings, and sculptures, emanating from Naqvi’s brave confrontation of identity-based injustice in the current socio-political landscape. Through these works Naqvi juxtaposes dissent with the tenderness of family, care, and healing in the domestic layout of this exhibition.

About the Artist
Sarah Naqvi is an Indian artist, based in Mumbai/Amsterdam. Their work engages in narratives themed around religious and societal polarisation, centring art and their tool for activism. The materiality and techniques in their work are at play to create familiarity with the viewer, with satire, whimsical props, and softness you are made to believe something joyous awaits. 
Sarah studied Liberal Arts at St. Xavier's College, Mumbai and earned their Bachelor of Textiles from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. They had their first solo exhibition Bashaoor, at Clark House, Mumbai in 2018, followed by their second solo exhibition, Sharam o Haya, at Ame Nue, Hamburg in 2019. They have also shown their work at the Bangkok Art Biennale, MAIIAM Contemporary Art Museum in Thailand and Kunsthall Trondheim in Norway.
Sarah has been a part of the De Ateliers Residency, Amsterdam in 2019-2021 as well as the Forecast Forum Residency, Berlin in 2018. They were the recipient of 'The Phenomenal She' award in 2019 conferred by the Indian National Bar Association and NID Ford Foundation Grant in 2018.
