Cities are full of stories. Every nook and corner, every back alley, all the grand buildings and the roadside murals by local artists- they’re full of stories

Hemu’s talk is about unearthing those stories for herself, and the ‘being lost’ she faced before finding what it is that she’s been looking for. In the words of Hemalatha, “Being lost isn’t a bad thing for me for it helps me find something I might have otherwise not found. I travel through cities and engage in deep research and art of the space, and listen hard for the stories stuck in brick and mortar. I look for beads of culture mixed in with the wall colours and paint a story for everyone else to come later. I do this until I learn the city, until it becomes familiar, until it becomes home, until I am not lost anymore– until the next journey.”
