Akshita Gandhi is a multi-media artist based in Mumbai. By merging social, historical, and mythological concepts her work explores the relationship between time and space. Her body immersive installations include Le cirque de la liberté (2020), a mise-en-scene inspired by the circus, and Dare to Break Free (2020), a commission by the Berlin-based music festival Kater Blau. In the mixed media painting, lightbox, and poetry series Freedom, I Read Banned Books (2019) she advocates breaking free from patriarchal structures. Using light as a guiding principle Gandhi’s work speaks to the transformative power of artistic practice.
