Change Room Archives
Baaraan Ijlal’s project Change Room Archives @changeroomarchives as part of Peripheries & Crossovers is a digital curation of previous and ongoing Change Room recordings and will focus on women and the transgender community. Change Room is an ongoing sound installation of conversations about one’s own fears, apprehensions and desires, driving change through the acts of telling, listening, and witnessing. It has been live since April, 2018 and was conceptualised as an open channel of voices telling their stories anonymously, with the artist as the witness. A self-taught artist based in Delhi, Baaraan @baaraanijlalstudio has been interested in exploring anonymity in her practice as essential to individual liberty. She seeks to enable listening and creating witnesses to unacknowledged stories.
