Bharti Kher (1969, UK) is an Indian contemporary artist. Her work encompasses painting,
sculpture and installation, often incorporating bindi as a marker for the third eye. She has
been engaged with the varying traditions of the readymade, minimalism and abstraction,
mythology and the narrative for the past twenty years. Pervading themes that constitute the
mainstay of Kher’s oeuvre are the interlocking relationships between man and animal
kingdom, associated notions of hybridity; the links between abstraction and figuration, and
the question of the other in gender, ethics and imagery.
Kher’s most recent shows include “Sketchbooks and Diaries”, Isabella Stewart Gardner
Museum, Boston (2017); “Dark Matter”, Museum Frieder Burda Salon Berlin (2017);
“Matter”, Vancouver Art Gallery (2016); “This Breathing House”, Freud Museum London,
(2016); and “Misdemeanors”, Rockbund Art Museum (2014).
In 2015, she was awarded the Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
