I am currently living and working in New Delhi, India. My work is research based and often employs video, performance and text. Recent projects include CITY AS DEMO, BACK TO WORK and NOTES ON MOURNING. These projects reflect on work-as performance and inquire into the changing notions of profession and labour, the transactional value of work, fictionalised accounts of future cities and societies.
Since 2013 I am also working with the Mobile Academy Berlin, a group of artists, researchers and academics, from various fields (media, literature, philosophy) working between the intersection of art and science, and on different modes of knowledge distribution.
I am writing my PhD at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University. My research is looking at the representation of labour in Indian contemporary art, through the depiction of labouring bodies, through activist engagement with and advocacy for workers unions or groups, or through collaborations with them in the making of art works or projects and also into hidden labour in artist’s studio spaces and the changing notion of the “art work” in the 21st century.
