Untitled (Midnight) (2019) is a photographic installation that compares how buildings produced in post-partition India and architecture developed by the Indian diaspora in Britain have sought to convey faith and civic identity through architectural form. The work contrasts Le Corbusier’s use of cast concrete and modernist forms to produce the civic plan for Chandigarh, with the recent use of ancient stonemasonry to construct Hindu temples (such as Neasden Temple) in the United Kingdom. Th e exhibition addresses how themes of modernity, tradition and religious/civic belonging shape post-colonial identity both in India itself and throughout the Indian diaspora in the United Kingdom.
