BEING…..( 2004)                                                    

Saadiya Kochar’s Self Portrait in ‘Being…’

‘Trapped in my head are questions.

Years have been spent, pondering, searching….

Agonizing over them.

Tears, sweat, time…..all of me…..

I have spent harboring them

And yet, here I sit, all alone

Just my questions and me

Where, I wonder, were the answers?- Being.  (S.K)

The works were an intrinsic quest, dealing with questions of existence and using the bare body to express emotional upheaval. Trying to break away from the shackles of a difficult life- it was about the coming of age of young woman. The pictures were accompanied by text, not poetry but  more like scribbles. Being…. was a self-published endeavor.
