BHARTI KHER: MATTER. Ed. by Daina Augaitis. Black Dog Publishing Limited, London, 2016. 160 pp. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781910433973 In English.
Due date: September 2016. Publisher's description: Bharti Kher is a contemporary Indian artist whose work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation. Relocating to New Delhi after studying art in Newcastle, UK, Kher's practice explores cultural misunderstandings and social codes. Hers is an art of dislocation and transience. Likening herself to the well intentioned ethnographer investigating her culture, Kher delivers a forceful reinterpretation of India's present and its history. Following an accidental encounter with a woman wearing a sperm bindi on her forehead, Kher made bindis a central motif in her practice. Bindis swarm over Kher's sculptures and are deployed in vivid chromatic constellations. Arranged en masse, each dot or squiggle can be understood as a person, their placement analogous to demographic movement -- the migrations of a population. BHARTI KHER focuses on the artist's exploration of identity, aiming to bring together works that speak especially to the perceptions and realities of being female today. Kher's vivid representations of the ageing female body serve as witness to the pressures our society places on keeping bodies young.
