Both artists have captured the essence of historical traumas – India’s Partition for Malani and South Africa’s Apartheid for Kentridge - and utilized shadow play as a medium of historical memory.  Their intention is not merely to portray traumatic pasts, but to create an instrument to recognize the past from a new perspective.
