ThisOnly is an art collective developed out of the teachings of Dr. Roger Neesh, as expressed through *Pardon My Hindi. ThisOnly's practice involves applying artistic techniques to the results of archival research to catalog and narrate layered histories through the media of mundane, everyday objects.
The word “Only” is used in South Asian English to emphasize a statement (e.g. I want this only.)
The December 2020 collection, being released in conjunction with an exhibit at Rawson Projects, features wearables and zines that explore the aesthetics and socio-political context behind the legendary rapper KRS-One’s experience in New York in the early 1980s and the first Communist government (elected in 1957) in Kerala, India.
