A reimagined bioscope, Bird Box is a sound and video installation, by our Artist-in-Residence – Baaraan Ijlal, of a series of conversations of young girls from the cities of Bhopal, Lucknow, Karvi and Delhi. The identity of the participants has been kept anonymous.

The bioscope of yesteryears that was a successful tool for carrying the social, the patriotic, the erotic and the religious iconography to the person on the street is used here as a medium that allows privacy and anonymity. It has been used to explore the inner lives of young girls from vastly different backgrounds. As their voices mesh with the images that they see of others like them – from other times, places, in art and in life – we experience for a little while how it feels to be them, unguarded and unfettered by expectation. They laugh, they judge, they are shocked and desirous of the pictures they see; they respond in unexpected and delightful ways to the way in which the world sees them. The installation suspends us for a fraction of time in how the world looks, feels, sounds and feels, from a girls perspective.

Do you have a 10×10 feet space, anywhere in India, where you would be interested in hosting the Bird Box and starting a conversation? Write to us at conflictorium@gmail.com and let’s collaborate to make this a travelling exhibit that helps one to keep talking.
