ENCOUNTER
Paintings and Installations by Vee Munshi
By Geeti Sen


Exile is strangely compelling to think about but terrible to
experience. It is the unhealable rift between a human being
and a native place, between the self and its true home;
its essential sadness can never be surmounted.

-- Edward Said, Reflections on Exile, 2001, p. 173.


Exile can become a state of mind: a divide between person and place. For some such as Veer Munshi, exile has been caused by political compulsions, when no options were left for him but to flee the territory. Recreating that place left behind becomes obsessive, to regain a sense of lost territory and an identity lost. Relocated elsewhere, he revisits again and again that paradise lost until it becomes a habitual refuge … But then that ‘rift’ between the self and home becomes the means to recreate anew, a world that breaks all boundaries of place and time.
