Cups of nun chai

a memorial

October 2010 - July 2012

A participatory memorial that emerged in response to the loss of life that took place in the Indian controlled region of Kashmir during the Summer of 2010.

Like an ever-growing memory, Cups of nun chai has unfolded over two years of tea and conversation into a gentle yet challenging refusal to allow this loss of life to simply pass...

Upon a scaffolding of names, dates and places emanating from Kashmir, the engagement engendered over Cups of nun chai takes place through personal stories that connect Kashmir to countless other places and peoples around the world. Here it is personal experience and memory, with all its nuance and complications, which gives voice to history.
