D. Priyanka

Priyanka has done her M.F.A in visual arts from College of Art, New Delhi in 2017, her current work involves the intricated research and lab work in microorganisms and Quantum Theory of Particles Physics. She explores the dichotomies between time and space; reality and make believing the magical and mundane with deliberate nature of a scientific anthropologist and philosophy. Her work meditates upon the flavour of micro to macro universe, make believe realities myths, which considers the notion of time, space and gravity to understand what constructs the universe while being invisible to the naked eye. Her conversation is about the subatomic level of micro universe, and existence of hybrid realm. She invites the viewer to enter into brilliant theatre of strange, poetic and previously undiscovered reality of juxtaposition that take the motif of metamorphosing the elements of nature into philosophical thought and visual means. While keeping her work under the umbrella term of experimental artist she uses various media like - installation, print, large scale drawings, sculpture and painting.
