Massy Gallery (Massy Books) Aaniya Asrani: Temporary Resident

Closes Sunday 22 August 2021

Description: From Aaniya Asrani/Massy Gallery, “These pieces exist in response to the in-between space I have come to inhabit as a foreign body distanced from home. A space in limbo, which has only been exacerbated by a year of flight bans, confinement, and uncertainty. Rather than conceal my feelings, I have accepted and held space for the surfacing of negative emotions such as Depression and Anxiety which have come to resemble old friends. I now invite them to dance with me.”
