The Lost Head & The Bird explores the artist's response to the current socio- political climate in India today. It takes the audience on a journey to hidden aspects of Indian society - to life on the fringes. A disorientating and absurd world, where the boundaries between fact and fiction blur, and the undercurrents of caste, sexual, religious, and political violence lurk beneath the surface, erupting in ever more frequent outbursts. Born out of an ongoing four year photographic project titled The Coast, which saw Hura traveling up and down the subcontinent documenting "the wonderful and vicious things that happen along the Indian coastline," The Lost Head & The Bird explores a frighteningly fast-changing, post-truth world where actions are fuelled by appeals to emotion and facts are increasingly ignored.
