Khurana’s art practice embraces areas in-between video, photography, elements of performance, drawing, installation, and more recently, works in public spaces. Her recent body of work - mainly videos, performances and text - focuses on the poetics of inner experience, and the polemics of being in the world. Khurana tends to draw critically on these concerns in ways that are often visually simple and understated. Join us for this special talk with Catherine Butterworth.
Through performative modes, Khurana strives to engage with the constant struggle between body and language, to achieve a corporeal eloquence. Through these deliberately poetic intimations, Khurana strives to persistently explore and re-define the space of the political.
Sonia Khurana has exhibited and worked widely and internationally, including recently at Aichee Trienniale (Ngoya, Japan), Centre Pompidou (Paris, France) and the Whitechapel Gallery as part of ‘Where three dreams cross’, and the travelling exhibition ‘Indian Highway’. In May 2010 she was a panel speaker for ‘Art Institutions and Feminist Politics Now’ symposium at MOMA , New York.
