Partition was monumental; the largest mass migration of people ever, the figures, the facts, the statistics are horrific and unbelievably complex. Nadim Chaudry’s installation is born out of a need to acknowledge this and also to pay homage to the quagmire of this ungodly event. Partition for Nadim is about belonging, it is about the search for a homeland, it is about Zameen.
