As an artist and researcher, my aim is to translate social interactions, constructions and paradoxes within a decoding and encoding visual language. I see the canvas as a ‘heterotopia’, using a term by Foucault, another world within this world, mirroring and yet upsetting what is outside; a space of experimentation in which the constructed mechanisms of social life are revealed.

Many of my recent artworks focus on my doctoral research project in Nepal in which I explored family conflict, hierarchy subversion, the evolution of rites of passage and the making of the self among the ethnic group of the Newars. Some images from my art book She Fell and Became a Horse can be seen on this page.
