“THE NAIL HOUSE”

An Exhibition By Anjana Mehra, Presented At The Nine Fish Art Gallery, Byculla, Mumbai
From 30th March – 15th April 2021

A nail house is a term that refers to homes where residents refuse to vacate and abandon their premises despite the pressure from builder sharks, thugs and corrupt officials. The guise of re-development, and the lure of a new square foot area, couples with coercion and intimidation. A loner, a family might dig their heels into their stand-alone and crumbling habitats. Eventually, time swallows the grit and determination to hold on. Anjana graduated with a Diploma in Painting from Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai. She further completed her Post Graduate degree in Printmaking from M.S. University, Baroda. Anjana remembers, “Having lived through such an experience, I can now put it behind and continue the re-building of life.”
