HEER | 2018

Sanjay Garg Festive 2018 recalls the shared culture of pre-partition Punjab through Heer’s bridal festivities. Set against Patiala’s Baradari Palace, Heer partakes in her wedding without the fuss for today’s finery and acknowledges tradition while making some her own. Knee length Kurtas, floor grazing Sharara’s and draped silk satin odhani’s are worn by family and friends, who revel in the present through times past. Textiles draw from vintage archival Varanasi silk brocades featuring motifs that gain meaning through history, culture and context. Leaves of the neem tree, geometric lattices and floral trellises add weightless ornamentation and are embedded in the richness of mustard yellow, rani pink, magenta, red, pale pink and rama green.
