Amrita Barua

Independent Researcher

Rai is a graduate of Kala Bhavana, Santiniketan and the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. She works with image, text and site-responsive installations. Her practice involves paintings, self-published books, games and audio-visual essays as approaches. She is interested in creating images from her experiences, where found materials, memories, weather and fiction collide. Her work largely moves around themes of space and permeability – how people engage with spaces and create their own logic of being in that space. Rai interacts with these notions as a means of inserting stories, subjectivities and alterations within them.
