Anna Boghiguian was born in 1946, an Armenian in Cairo, yet never adopted the city as her only home. Living a nomadic life, the artist has constantly moved from city to city across the globe, from Egypt to Canada and India to France. Her work incorporates observations, historical facts, literature and poetry into complex narratives of power and migration. The exhibition at Index will include a large-scale installation charting the global histories of cotton trade.
