Hailing from India and Iran respectively, Raja and Ghanbarzadeh are interested in themes of displacement, migration and cultural negotiation. An important component in these themes is language. Living between two cultures, they find themselves constantly translating and finding different ways of communicating. In their recent work, they explore different aspects of language- script as form, legibility and illegibility, communication and chaos and the relationship between drawing and writing. Through mixed media works that include unconventional materials, video installation, cut paper, wall stencils, prints and drawings, they ask these questions- Is communication possible beyond and outside of our conventional understanding of language?
What is the potential of text when it becomes non referential- like music, beyond specificity and context? What is lost in translation?
