Reviving Memory: The Forgotten Stories of Nagaland
Project Genre: Mixed Media Installation
Project Description: This research project investigates how art can serve as a means to preserve endangered folktales of the Naga people in North East India before they succumb to the impacts of globalization. The focus of the research is on the younger generation of Naga people, who have participated in drawing workshops to glean imagery t incorporate into the artist’s illustrations of the traditional Naga folktales. The final outcome will be presented in an installation space that can evoke real feelings and memories in relation to how the traditional folktales were being narrated decades ago.
