Zied Ben Romdhane: Waiting Zones/ Zones D'Attentes Clark House Bombay Opening 1st February, 6pm-8pm, free and open to all, part of the exhibition 'Proletariat Aesthetics'
Tunisian photographer Zied Ben Romdhane presents waiting zones from the first 'Sit In' at the central kasbah in the capital Tunis, a woman waits outside a police station in Kef that has been burned in a protest, at an airport in Djerba without airplanes, at checkpoints in Tobruk in Libya, from Shousha the camp for refugees on the Tunisian and Libyan border called Ras Jedir, where people wait in lines for food, wait for tents, wait for passports, immigrant workers wait for their governments, wait for the civil war to end. Zied Ben Romdhane was born in Tunis in 1981 to a Berber family from the island of Djerba. He began taking photographs in 2003 to understand and perhaps change the nation of ten million into which he was born. He has since worked in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, and Yemen - documenting the island of Socotra.Photos Galleries
