Faith in Paris

Artist Shweta Bhattad was part of exhibition “Sharing Our Stories”: Global South Social Movements on climate change, which was organized during COP21. During this exhibition, she conducted her performance Faith where she buried herself in ground, in a coffin for several hours, continuously writing the word Faith. The concept of “faith” comes as a continuation of Shweta’s engagement with farmers from India and across the globe. Through her performance she aims to create awareness about farmers’ plight across the world.

As part of this global project, she invited artists from around the world to share their concerns and ideas about the current farming scenario. Among other collaborators, I contributed a video sharing my concerns about environment and organic farming. The video was projected in Paris during the UN climate conference and in Nagpur, India on 7 December 2015.
