Joyce Peterson: Landscapes in Gouache

Fabled Territories; New Asian Photography In Britain, Collins Gallery, Glasgow. ‘In the absence oi sell-images, where do I locate myseli it not in the barren land between symbol and stereotype. Fabied territory.’ It is uselul to remember this poignant line irom Allen de Souza's text when considering the work oi the many photographers on show. Any representation oi marginalised groups, whether in the visual, literary or documentary medium, is a site oi struggle. The exhibition oi New Asian Photographers reflects this struggle in its many forms: sexual, political, personal and cultural, using a variety of photographic practices. Many oi the photographers are sell-taught, most work independently and the majority are women.

The images coniront identities in conilict which are threatened and

displaced, iragmented across time and

place. Roshini Kempadoo’s sequence

oi black and white photographs with text explores autobiographically a history which is both Here and There, her childhood spent in the Caribbean being reconstructed through memory, distance and changing identiiicatlons. Mumtaz Karimjee's photographic journey, My Mothers, My Sisters, is a testament to the silenced history oi women; Bani Chennama iought against British Imperialism in 1824, Kamladevl Chattopadhyay persuaded Gandhi that women should participate in direct elections, Bakiath Begum is Secretary at the Domestic Workers Union'ln Bangalore. The continuous yet dliiuse struggle oi women across time becomes part at the artist’s own history and becomes a iorm oi empowerment against the passive, exoticised images at Indian women iashioned by patriarchal and colonial ideologies. Pratibha Parmar’s video works, Sari Bed and Memory Pictures, explore ideas oi immigration, identity and racist violence. The iormer is made in remembrance oi Kalbinder Kaur Hayre, killed by iascists in 1985.

The voices which speak and make themselves visible through the outstanding works in the show lrom all the iineen participants, are ‘lrom the ashen lands oi the past, we seek new territories which as yet have no tables, which as yet, are unnamed.’ (Allan de Souza). Against the present backdrop oi disintegration, racist prejudice and violence, this assertive exhibition is vitally important ior questions ol identity and power in conilict with British imperialism, both in the past and in the here and now.
