Neha Choksi: Leaf Fall

Nov 4, 2011 – Jan 7, 2012

Neha Choksi’s Leaf Fall records a single day’s work of stripping a rural peepul tree of all its leaves, save an autumnal sprig at the tip of a single high branch. This lyrical sunrise to sunset look at a process of laying bare, of stripping away everything until the ordinary is made singular, is a picture of severe loss as a starting point for life’s renewal.

Leaf Fall is being screened as part of the UMOCA ongoing video series, Looped.
