Vortrag und Diskussion zu ihrer Arbeit.
Surekha wohnt im Mai/Juni in den Lichtenberg Studios und erkundet den Bezirk.
Surekha is a visual artist/curator, exploring how video & photography as artistic forms negotiate public and private spaces. Her works explore and inter-relate the domains of archiving, documenting and performing, by reflecting upon how visuality can engage with socio political aesthetics.
Surekha will share some of her projects that vigorously intervene with the public domain, in relation to the city of Bangalore, emphasising on the projects : Lake Tales (Negotiating routes: Focussing the Urban-Rural margins) and ‘Black Pepper –Red Pepper’ — part of the Exhibition ‘Digging deep crossing far – WW1.’ The project is based on the research into the Military archive of Bangalore, revealing the role of Indian army (British India) that participated in the First World War.Eventually the project will be shown in Kunstraum Kreuzberg, Berlin in September 2016. Surekha will also share the ongoing VAG Forum artists protest in the city of Bangalore to save a public art space which is a relevant subject of international concern.
Surekha lives and works in Bangalore.
