Bharat Sikka - Waiting for Midnight
Taking the name from his daughter's poem, Bharat Sikka explores his village in Goa, Salvador do Mundo (Saviour of the World), where the mundane and the mysterious collide. The photographs in 'Waiting for Midnight' are a culmination of what has been seen, sensed, and experienced over the last 15 years. The Polaroid image creates a nostalgic memory, blurring the line between the past and the present. The work is made around the eve of 2020, waiting for the new year, waiting for midnight.
