Artists Mohini Chandra and Karl Ohiri will come together to discuss their work in relation to the MA Curating exhibition Unquiet Moments: Capturing the Everyday. 

Chandra and Ohiri are artists whose work examines similar questions of cultural belonging, heritage, and migration. Unquiet Moments: Capturing the Everyday includes two important works by these artists, Chandra’s Album Pacifica and Ohiri’s How to Mend a Broken Heart, which are linked by their re-contextualisation of personal artefacts to explore wider complexities surrounding family and communal histories. This conversation will explore the social function of photography in visualising individual and collective histories, as well as both artists’ appreciation for the physicality of this medium in the pre-digital era.

This talk is part of a series of events programmed around Unquiet Moments: Capturing the Everyday, an online exhibition of images and objects that capture the small wonders and disappointments, the intimate joys and tragedies, that shape our lives. As diaries of personal experience, portraits of families and communities, or traces of loss, these works of art call us to reflect upon the many ways in which we construct archives of our lives and memories
