"All of the women I know love windows,

maybe we are all looking for an exit strategy, 

maybe we are all looking for a way out"

 

excerpt from the poem ‘Of windows and running away’ by Yamini Krishnan

Women have been often described or imagined as homes, a space one feels safe and sound. But women, more often than not, get trapped in the domestic setting, an ordeal of stereotypes. Revisiting family archives, with images made in and around homes, a space for them to dream and be themselves. Captured in these photographs, women both express and camouflage themselves from these confined roles. Using windows as a metaphor into their everyday, soundly adorned by flowers, 'Gul-posh' looks at the rosy picture of women looking outwardly, an escape from these roles. These letters to the past after long silence— itself caught between representation and fabrication — seems the archetype medium to illustrate the predicament.
