Manjari Sihare recommends reading this conversation with Nalini Malani, recently featured in The New York Times
New York: The India Ink section of The New York Times recently featured an interview with eminent Indian artist of international repute, Nalini Malani. One of the best known experimental artists from the country, Malani hardly needs an introduction. Born in Karachi in 1946, she came to India as a refugee of the partition of the Subcontinent, an experience that deeply informs her artistic practice. Committed to the role of the artist as social activist, Malani often bases her work on the stories of those that have been ignored, forgotten or marginalized by history. Her practice encompasses drawing and painting, as well as the extension of those forms into projected animation, video and film. Her work “In Search of Vanished Blood” was featured at the 13th edition of dOCUMENTA and thereafter at the recently concluded Kochi Muziris Biennale. Click here to learn more.
