Work Title: "My blood, Your Script & Bull Tongue"



 
Work Title: "My blood, Your Script & Bull Tongue"  
Performance
 Approximate duration: 20 min
(Dhaka Art Summit 2014)
About the work.
Nepalese Gurkha soldiers are an integral part of the British Army since last 200 years. Their motto "Better to die than to be a coward" is very ironic for me; I feel it's reflecting their hardest life before joining British Army. The whole world knows only Gurkhas brave stories but nobody had ever tried to know the reality behind their bravery. Always war begins by the egoistic thoughts and attitude of few people. Personally and politically Nepal has no conflict with anybody in the world. But in large parts of world war histories a lot of Nepalese lost their life & are still losing. During the First & Second World War only, more than 251,000 Nepalese Gurkhas fought & 60,000 lost their life. Another saddest movement we have noticed that in our Nepalese history we don’t have any text regarding Gurkhas. Nepal government has not given any attention to Gurkhas except collecting remittance from them. UK also has not succeeded to provide similar facilities to Gurkha soldiers as their own British soldiers.
In this performance I want to show how Illiteracy & Unemployment make blind the young people to risk their life in foreign land & the value of Gurkha army's blood.  For this performance I hang one British flag on my skin with safety-pin. I used two white bowl in one I put matchsticks (for symbol of bullet) & in another bowl I put my own blood. I fire matchsticks and cease the fire in the blood then i coats blood on my face and body with the sticks.

Echo of Darkness 2012

Echo of Darkness 2012
Performance (15min)
Organize by Creative Artist Group,
Pokhara



Illiteracy causes the unemployment, unemployment causes the poverty, Unemployment, the main cause of making brain a devil’s house, to prevent oneself being a useless load, every day around 1200 youths are migrating to foreign land from this small mountainous country Nepal. As a heaven for workers from Nepal, India and Middle East holds major share beside these working in Indian and British forces as “Gurkha soldiers” has been holding over 60, 00000 Nepalese youth worldwide. The more of the shocking fact is that only in Saudi Arabia monthly around 200 Nepali workers loses their life. Due to the lack of benevolent leadership country has been in the vicious circle of political conflict between then the Maoist and government has caused the 15 years civil war. The saddest movement we have noticed that government is taking remittance as a major income and overseas job as a major product to export from the country, which has been a cause for the people to risk their life in foreign land.I am dedicating this performance to those Nepali workers who working in different foreign countries for small amount of money & putting their life in risk. "Echo of darkness" represents their stories, their works, & their pain. For this Performance I used workers' gloves (used one), Hammer, Charcoal, 50 pieces of white cloth & 50 envelops with Nepali workers name from different country's & visitors name.

Performance (15min)
Sutra local workshop, pokhara 2006, Organize by Sutra

This event was a satirical performance to the then government controlled media. I got myself into a costume made tight black suit with a mask on I had a photograph of my own smile stuck on my face. There, I lied on the ground with my dress nailed into bulks of wood. I could hardly move since i was unable to see the surroundings clearly with the mask on and the wood was also quite heavy to move. Yet i relentlessly struggled, finally I releasing myself from the wood. Concluding this performance, I carried two of the bulks on my shoulder and went inside an empty hut, took off the mask and came out to the spectators. This black person indicated the then media who unwilling had to suppress the pain of the nation and spread false news supporting the then government.
