Wall Stories
Premium

26 Min

'Wall Stories' is a pictorial journey through the Garhwal region in the Western Himalayas. Centered around Dehradun between the rivers Ganga and Yamuna, it tells the fascinating story of the history and culture of its people through mural paintings found in the area, and the daily life that is lived around them. Going from a portrait of Noor Jehan dressed as a Pahari lady, to depictions of the 'Indar Sabha' the first Urdu full length play, and one of the richest repositories of illustrations of the Janmsakhi (the life of Guru Nanak), these painting from the end of the 17th to the 19th century defy the boundaries of low art and high art, religion and received history. 'Wall Stories' uses imaginary conversations, treats the subject of the paintings as living subjects and plays with its subject matter to explore the space and meaning created in the everyday lives of the people who encounter these paintings.
