phantoroman: SKIRMISH

Laser-cut acrylic over inkjet on Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta paper, Series of 8, each 40 x 60 cm

Skirmish is a brief, unhappy, love story with pictures and text, another of Raqs’ ongoing forays into the photo-roman form.

Skirmish tells the story of an imagined estranged couple fighting a coded war of messages against themselves. Their bitter and desiccated passion, halfway between seduction and aversion, is played out on the surface of dreams and the walls of an unknown city.
