My Bath (Ongoing photo-series)

Detail- A Series of work Selfies as Self-Portraits. Medium- Printing ink, Oil, Print on canvas

About: The project aimed to create a satirical photo series. The work embedded with multiple layers of meanings and intentions which mocks the cultural identity, gender issues, nationality, and contemporary ‘Selfie’ culture in social media.

 

Each work created in the artist's own bathroom in London by the strict methodological lens- based practice to produce ‘Selfies’ as mimicry of consumerism.

 

Following Freudian hierarchies of intimate domestic spaces (toilets) artist aimed to show it as invasive to the patriarchal structure where the body emerges from the liquid to solid. "Visarjan" to "Arohan" (In Sanskrit sinking/immersing to emerging).
