Neha Choksi

Neha ChoksiArtist’s Statement

I work in multiple media, across disciplines and, at times, collaboratively and in unconventional settings. My work in performance, video, sculpture, photo, and hybrid installation explores how we experience loss, growth, and transformations in material and psychological terms. Increasingly my work includes my own intellectual, cultural and social contexts to revisit how we get emotionally and culturally socialized. I often work by setting up simple situations and memorable interventions in the lives of everything—from a stone to a plant, from animal to self, from friends to institutions—disrupting logic to open a space for poetry, absurdity, humor, surprise and existential insight.
