CURVE IN DESIRE

Curving something needs an understanding of length and point of arrival, but what stays in the line is the potential for the pull, that drawing in to draw out. The curve in desire is generative, to move beyond the city of desire, to trace toxin spaces and inhabitants in it that never become a part of the city, only remain - unarrivable.
The curve holds shapes of flyovers, railways, canals, sewage lines and large-small open-enclosed toxin terrains connecting and contaminating our rotating bodies. In this rotation, some parts come out as outcastes from the structures of cities. This out from the old desire is the conceptual curve that makes a bend in thinking and calls for a new episteme. The sharp curve pulled from the desire of Hindus in 1956 Nagpur, the slow act of separation from the machinery of organised desire. Come to the practice of thinking into a new direction that city infrastructure is unable to reach. The curve is an image of what is untouched yet completely used, removed from vision yet everywhere, unheard yet articulating, a dent in the city where the potential of meeting the wastewater is open along with immediate questions on equality, ecology and a new way of reading the world.
