Publication Date 2012
Description To mark the occasion of Bharti Kher’s solo exhibition at the foundation in September 2012, Parasol unit has produced a significant publication offering a survey of the internationally acclaimed artist. Born in the UK, Bharti Kher relocated to India in 1993 where she continues to live and work. Kher’s exquisite work juxtaposes opposites - modernity clashes with tradition, East contrasts with West, the personal and global are divergent. Incorporating bindi painting, sculpture and installation, each with a strong sense of narrative, Kher draws her heterogeneous practice into a unique and compelling mythology. Parasol unit’s comprehensive monograph will explore Bharti Kher’s multidisciplinary practice. Featuring insightful essays by Parasol unit Director/Curator Ziba Ardalan, art critic and curator Gayatri Sinha, and Tom Morton, curator, writer and contributing editor for frieze, alongside an interview with the artist by curator and writer Aveek Sen, the publication will be illustrated with full-colour images.
