Review of Pakistani artist Bani Abidi's solo exhibition called "Section Yellow," which examines the process of identity breakdown and structures of control surrounding international travel, especially between India and Pakistan. The videoin the exhibition depicts travelers waiting to obtain visas, both anxious as they await their turn and fearful of rejection. The tone of the exhibition is described as both witty and tragic, a reflection of the artist's own experience.
