Neha Choksi joins Senior Curator Natasha Howes in conversation about her new film. Shot on the construction site for an expansive and modernizing Jain ashram in India, Choksi invents open ended and playful situations for her participants and in doing so examines the connections and tensions between solitude and collaboration.
The talk took place on Saturday 30 September 2017 at Manchester Art Gallery.
