Poulami Banerjee


I work across a range of mediums including painting, installation, and performance. My recent works investigate socio-political, economic, cultural, and psychological issues that are mostly driven by my personal experiences. Currently, I am examining gender-related issues through my cultural lens. My works address burning issues like gender stereotypes, regressive attitude towards menstruation, and marital rape which is still legal in my country. A significant proportion of my recent works deal with grief and mental illness in a cathartic manner. After losing many of my loved ones over the past few years, I have been struggling with these losses while being away from home. Through these works, I explored my own experience, but I also attempt to create visual space and language that may allow viewers a place to contemplate their own experiences.
