Taking inspiration from seemingly insignificant everyday spaces, Gopa Trivedi’s work process incorporates characteristics and implications related to space, time, degeneration, and fragmentation. Gopa sees the space as a cocoon that envelops the inhabitants and acts as an agency of biographies of the lives that inhabit them. These spaces encompass the lives within them and bear traces of what has and what still dwells in them.
