Figures with absent landscapes

See the note to the reader in the first post of this diary for details about the residence and the project.

Which home I’m talking about?

A conversation with Gobinda Kharel and Jean-Xavier Ridon about home and abroadness

Gobinda Kharel is the president of the Nepali Samaj Nottingham, the association of Nepali residents in town. He’s been living in the United Kingdom since 2014 after having previously studied in Singapore for four years and in the Netherlands for nine years. He has supported my research from the beginning and, along with Andeep Acharya and Tara Bhandari, has been a crucial person to the success of my effort in reaching the community.
