Rajkamal Kahlon

Double Vision

Rajkamal Kahlon works with the visual material of colonialism – with ‘ethnogenic’ and ethnographic books, plates and military strategy books from the colonial era. She modifies representations of the ‘colonial Other’, appropriates them, transforms and destroys them. Her approach to the visual repertoire of grotesque, pathologised and criminalised bodies involves showing a change of perspective of spaces and historical eras marked by colonialism.
She address the issue of the right to personal self-representation and a reflection of the positions in a sometimes playful, sometimes serious manner, and in this way develops her own, fascinating aesthetic, which could perhaps be termed post-colonial.
