Sahej Rahal, ‘Algebra in Andheri’, 2016, Liverpool Biennial

Sahej Rahal (b. 1988, Mumbai, India) lives in Mumbai. Rahal’s installations, films and performances are part of an elaborate burgeoning mythology. He creates it by drawing characters from a range of sources, from local legends to science fiction. By bringing these characters and narratives into dialogue with each other, Rahal creates scenarios where indeterminate beings emerge into the everyday, as if from the cracks of our civilization.

This edition represents a character that recurs throughout The Two-Sided Lake: Episodes, Scenarios and Sets from Liverpool Biennial 2016, the book that has been produced on the occasion of the Biennial. The character is a hermaphrodite narrator who Rahal imagines as a shapeshifting forest.
