Bharti Kher

23 Sep – 15 Dec 2019

We are delighted to welcome back artist Bharti Kher as artist-in-residence. Kher is the first artist to continue a residency in conjunction with their exhibition, and will be staying with us until December 2019. She was previously artist-in-residence with us September – December 2017.

Bharti Kher was born in London in 1969. Kher’s art gives form to quotidian life and its daily rituals in a way that reassesses and transforms their meaning to yield an air of magical realism. Now living in New Delhi, India, her use of found objects is informed by her own position as an artist located between geographic and social milieus. Kher’s way of working is exploratory: surveying, looking, collecting, and transforming, as she repositions the viewer’s relationship with the object and initiates a dialogue between metaphysical and material pursuits.

Kher has exhibited at numerous museums and institutions internationally. Recent solo exhibitions include: Museum Freider Burda, Baden Baden, Germany (2018) and Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum, Boston, MA, USA (2018). Kher’s work featured in the Sydney Biennale in 2016. Past exhibitions include Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada, (2016); Freud Museum, London, UK (2016); Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Perth, Australia (2016); the Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai, China (2014); and Parasol Unit Foundation For Contemporary Art, London, UK (2012). Bharti Kher was awarded the Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2015.

Bharti Kher is participating in the following exhibitions, running throughout Autumn/Winter 2019/20: Desire: A Revision from the 20th Century to the Digital Age, IMMA, Dublin, Ireland, on display from 21 September 2019 until 22 March 2020. The Intermediary Family, Harvard Business School, Boston, MA, USA, on display currently until 31 March 2020.
