About the show:
From the beginning, Dimple Shah’s art practice has revolved around the areas of printmaking, painting, performance and installation.
Based in Bengaluru, Shah’s focus has recently been to blend these medium of art into an interdisciplinary language. In particular to her performance art, as a medium of expression, it involves the elements of time and space. It fulfills the dual purpose if engaging body as a means of communication and drawing audience response directly and instantly.

The idea is to bring the effect of these elements and by studying them in various aspects like psychological, sociological, ecological and philosophical ways to understand society and self.
