Commissioned work for Professor Ananya Jahanara Kabir, London.
Location : Paris, Ile Saint-Louis
Twelve years ago Professor Kabir and her husband, Professor Mrinal Dasgupta, spent
three months on sabbatical in Paris, living in a small top floor flat in the beautiful Ile
Saint-Louis. Professor Dasgupta worked in the nearby Physics Department at the
Campus Pierre et Marie Curie (Jussieu) while Professor Kabir completed her book on
Kashmir, ‘Territory of Desire’ from their flat.
It was a pleasure to recreate for professor Kabir memories of that special time,
particularly significant during the pandemic when all travel has been impossible.
