Who watches the Watchman?
This famous line from the cult graphic novel ‘Watchman’ forms the basis of this series.In this series the artist holds up a mirror to our times and initiates the debate that is relevant in many developing countries today. The very machinery that is supposed to protect us, fails to do so..Most countries are weighed down by the immensity of corruption within the authorities, where large numbers are living on the edge, unsure of what the future holds.
The promise of a new world and new politics is projected onto them. But is this promise real, unreal or surreal. The artists visual language is derived from her immediate urban environment. Each element represents a smaller component integral to the concept as a whole.
