Fluid Frontiers - Museum of Speculated Objects, 2016


Fazal Rizvi

Fluid Frontiers is the first in a series of exhibitions that took place at the fictitious ‘Museum of Speculated Objects’ (Rizvi’s long-term project). The exhibition presents a collection of tangible (and intangible) objects that were found floating and/or submerged within the Arabian Sea. Through research and imagination, narratives and moments have been woven around each of these found objects. This ‘exhibition guide’ helps traverse the fluid yet distinctly marked (and tense) maritime borders between India and Pakistan.
