Pooja Gurung and Bibhusan Basnet

  • Pooja Gurung and Bibhusan Basnet have a joint practice that merges film and visual art. Their artistic strategy  is deeply engaged with indigenous cultures, customary and traditional art forms, while presenting these voices in their full relevance for contemporary social issues, in beautifully staged plots and landscapes. Bibhusan Basnet and Pooja Gurung’s practice is an original and locally specific effort of decolonisation, that attempts to find novel ways of integrating different cultural viewpoints in Nepal, a country reinventing itself after an authoritarian regime that erased the many indigenous cultures. With its ethical approaches and aesthetic achievements, Bibhusan Basnet and Pooja Gurung’s practice can serve as a reference point for decolonization struggles around the world.
