Renée Sarojini Saklikar‘s children of air india is a series of elegiac sequences exploring the nature of individual loss, situated within public trauma. The work is animated by a proposition: that violence, both personal and collective, produces continuing sonar, an echolocation that finds us, even when we choose to be unaware or indifferent.
“Sarojini Saklikar has a hankering for including gaps and interruptions in her work. And her new book of poetry, children of air india: un/authorized exhibits and interjections, reflects this predilection.”–Charlie Smith, the Georgia Straight
After her widely successful launch last month at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at SFU Woodward’s (to an at capacity crowd), Saklikar’s New Westminster launch, in the city where she grew up, is a can’t miss event. Host Candice James will introduce Renee who will read from her book and personalize copies following her reading.
