Kalimpong

Kalimpong is an artist project in book form by London-based digital-installation artist Shezad Dawood (b. 1974), whose works are often inspired by his varied cultural heritage Pakistani, Indian and Irish. Dawood s new work is set in Kalimpong, India, and captures various moments from 1912 to the present day, interweaving fact and fiction, past and present. Explorers and spies, poets and travelers, lovers and strangers, princesses and humanoids are all strangely connected across the globe through this curious Indian town. Dawood used an exquisite corpse method to develop the story, inviting a number of international writers and cultural commentators to contribute texts. The writers responses to other writers often result in some surprising twists. Contributions by Tenzing Barshee, Shezad Dawood, Kai Friese, Alexander Keefe, Barbara Sirieix, Rosie Thomas. Kalimpong is a virtual sequel to Black Sun (2015), also published with Sternberg Press and Timothy Taylor Gallery, London.
