Mithu Sen

Born 1971 West Bengal, India
Lives and works in New Delhi, India

Mithu Sen works in a variety of media to explore and subvert hierarchical codes and rules, with particular reference to sexuality, language, the value of art and objects, and experiences of marginalisation. Through various devices and interventions she challenges our standards of social exchange, undermining the codes we come to rely on and recalibrating types of interaction. Her practice incorporates painting, poetry, social media, instructional exchanges and performance to demonstrate how language and social conventions can restrict our capacity of expression. Sen uproots how we display and value art by constructing interactive scenarios, objects for exchange, and propositions to ‘create and consume value’, reconceiving how art is shared and circulated.
