Extract:

“The form of the scroll affords Sheikh the great freedom that she needs to create (after Appadurai) a ‘timescape’. It is here perhaps that her authorship is at its most vivid and energetic. Divested of a frame, the vertical screen affords both a continuous and a discontinuous time/landscape – and here Sheikh may provide a continuity in sensuous or emotive evocation, but at will, she can fracture or induce a play of time. What she has at her disposal is the narrative of the trauma of loss, and the field, or the surface of the scroll then must allow for the kind of temporal shifts, nuance and gestures that she wills.”
