Portrait Sketch 2006

As part of a Triangle Arts Trust Gasworks residency at Khoj International Artists Association, Delhi, Ashery went to Dili Haat food and craft market dressed as a Jewish man and asked a street-portrait artist to draw her/him. Soon afterwards, Ashery returned, this time dressed as an Arab man, and asked the same artist to draw her/him. On both occasions the street-artist simply drew what he saw. This interaction explores the relationships between the two artists and their two practices.
