The project What Just Happened? Why am I Here? I want to go Home creates an immersive environment comprised of 11 constructed spaces that are suspended in time – a site of incident without a time stamp – wherein the viewer’s preconceived notions of what a space should look like, or what its history is, are immediately challenged when they are confronted by the surreal. The work on the surface will remind one of a set created for say a movie or an image of the aftermath – it may seem under construction or abandoned – but the incident will not be verified; it will not be narrated. Divyesh is interested in the incident being a speculation or a rumour or an urban legend – a possibility of stories and imagination. The site is the point of departure from which all those who experience it, will think through “What may have happened?”
People are invited throughout the day to wander and spend as much time as they want within the rooms and interact with the spaces.
