The Afterlife group has created eleven monumental photographs for a public exhibition facing the seashore on the Bandra Carter Road bandstand in Mumbai, India. These images, collected by individual artists in Korea, Greece, Quebec, Romania, Bosnia, Ontario, and Iceland, form an open constellation that speaks to the ambiguity of memory. Together they evoke a fragmentary, allegorical form of storytelling. They are like pages ripped from a monumental book: ruins of a story that we cannot reconstruct, but to which they bear mute witness. How Many Seas returns these images to gaze back at the sea. At a time marked by a shifting geopolitics of migration and survival, we understand even small aesthetic acts as forms of resistance.

Presented by What About Art?, with the support of Québec Government (Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie, Québec Government Office in Mumbai, Fonds de recherche – Société et culture); Faculty of Fine Arts, Concordia University; Post Image Research Cluster, Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology at Concordia and Hexagram International Network for Research-creation in Media arts, Design, Technology and Digital Culture.
