The Lost Head and the Bird opens a window into hidden aspects of contemporary India – an absurd and chaotic world where the boundaries between fact and fiction are blurred; and where the undercurrents of caste, sexual, religious and political violence lurk beneath the surface.

The video, explores the artist’s response to the current socio-political climate in India. It takes the audience on a journey to hidden aspects of Indian society – to life on the fringes. 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.
