Mequitta Ahuja

Mequitta Ahuja refers to her work and process as “Automythography,” a variation of a term coined by the author Audre Lorde. Ahuja defines “Automythography” as a constructive process of identity formation in which nature, culture and self-invention merge. Her works demonstrate female self-invention and self-representation. A multi-stage process, Ahuja first documents her solo performances in front of the camera.  She uses the resulting photographs as source material. In preparatory drawings, she develops the fictional elements of her work ultimately to be realized in works on canvas and paper.    


Ahuja has exhibited widely in North America and Europe. She received a 2011 Tiffany Foundation Award, a 2009 Joan Mitchell Award, and a 2008 Houston Artadia Prize.
