Minor Matters published The Answers Take Time, a mid-career survey of Annu Palakunnathu Matthew. This publication elucidates the progression of a conceptual, installation-driven artist who uses photography, collage, digital animation, parody, and ephemera to explore performative and deep-rooted personal elements of cultural identities. From her highly-publicized series “Indian from India” to the lesser-seen “Bollywood Satirized,” the book reveals within her work consistent themes of malleability, identity, and memory.
