Surekha Gallery Art

Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai, India

As a multi-media artist, Surekha has been exploring the gendered self as a self-conscious choice. Her works from the 1990s explored diverse materials as metaphors. She negotiates the public and private realm with ease, transcending genres and locating the body as a site of contestation and appropriation.

Her feminist aesthetics and cutting-edge strategies move beyond the confinement of two dimensionality into a multidisciplinary approach. She uses domestic skills like stitching to explore an aesthetic way of living and the relationship of craft to contemporary concerns about women's labor.

Her recent body of work uses photography to archive and document performance and masquerade. Images become memory and recollection of feminine spaces and gestures. Her video-installation Communing with Urban Heroines takes on the issues of women as survivors of domestic violence and moves away from the victim mode and celebrates the survivors. The mundane becomes the medical and mythic. The simple game/life becomes a poetic evocation of endurance and strength. Surekha has an ability to use material and media with conviction and like her own heroines, she will endure.
