Destiny Disrupted holds within it the spirit of Kapur’s words – in the artist we find the documentation of history, as well as the revolution and revelation of it folded into the cultural landscape through the material manifestation of the artist’s practice. The role of the artist as witness, maker, agitator, disruptor and social agent readily occupies the space found at the intersection of art and humanity.
