AM : PM — Shirin Laghai

With its immersed perspectives, AM : PM occupies the space we hold between each other. Drawing through the multiple realities of a view on today’s China, it evokes a sense of being within the isolation of modern life. Occupying the space between reflection and reality, within the intersection of identity, assumption, memory, and time, AM : PM invites the viewer to track a line through the hours of a single day, and scrutinise their own unexamined layers of the paradigms held within the distinct echoes of the connective self.
