After the decade-long con fict (1996-2006) that ended with Nepal becoming a Federal Democratic Republic, political unrest and weak governance continued to mar the future of the country as daily life repeatedly witnessed ruptures. From accessing essentials to employment, education, compensation, legal justice, health facilities, and human rights, the people of Nepal have been forced to wait. Karan Shrestha’s works record moments of impasse as the post-con fict period dragged on. The video speaks to how waiting has come to be a cultural pastime and the works on paper probe how the act of waiting is a symptom of deep-rooted social di ferences.
