Get to know SqW:Lab 2024 fellow – today we speak to architect Rohan Shivkumar

Where can you be found?

Mumbai, India

Tell us about a creative action you have taken this week.

Wrote a paper called ‘Drag Queens and Cannibals’

What does ‘home’ mean to you? 

A space on the other side of the mirror- to be longed for, but never achieved

What was the last thing you cooked?

Scrambled Eggs

Tell us about 2 of your most subtle influences.

The Grid. Pop Music.

Please share your thoughts / a few words about your expectations of the project.

Would it be too premature for me to say that I wish the Fellowship to be a space of play? The Fellowship for me is time and space taken out of the rhythms of everyday life where I hope we can test our presumptuous, biases and predilections through collective discovery, conversation and action. It can be a space where we can allow for new ideas to emerge out of the interactions between differences- a liminal space where encounters between disciplines and subjectivities can open out the possibility for comfort, ease, laughter, irony and joy.
