সিঙ্গারা ঠোঙ্গা (Samosa Packet)

I bought samosas (সিঙ্গারা) on the streets of Dhaka. The packets intrigued me. They were made from recycled print outs. I collected over 100.

 

Some were made from recycled court papers - endless lists of court cases including cases of individuals against the government.


After my uncle was jailed, I wondered if his case would appear on a samosa packet one day.

I began making my own packets about the political situation in Bangladesh.
