Max Limbu's practice explores the relationship between culture, heritage and politics through the lens of architecture and artefacts in the context of contemporary Nepal. He seeks to reconfigure objects and narratives that address and highlight local struggles confronting rapid urban change in a globalised world. He is particularly interested in the role of communal memories and narratives as a way of documenting historical changes and envisaging political possibilities. He often works with found or repurposed objects and use film as a primary medium to present collected narratives and myths that tell the story of urban conflict and cultural struggle, loss and change.
