Dayanita Singh / Adventures of a Photograper

NEWS Dayanita Singh is one of India’s most influential photographers. Her magical visual essays are now presented in an extensive solo show at Bildmuseet, the first comprehensive presentation of her work in the Nordic countries.

The exhibition opens Sunday 14 October at 14:00 with the participation of the artist, and will run until 13 January 2013. Press prewiew Thursday 11 October at 10:00: Länk

Experimental and interdisciplinary, Dayanita Singh moves between documentary photography and contemporary art in order to explore ideas on photography and narrating. Her work often takes a curious view of the seemingly everyday. Poetry and playfulness accompany a deep commitment, which characterize her visual storytelling. Adventures of a Photographer comprises works from the last twelve years: dreamlike landscapes, cityscapes and industrial nightscapes saturated with intense colour along with carefully executed black and white images of people and interiors such as her renowned portraits of Indian upper-middle-class families and her latest project, File Room.

Dayanita Singh (b. 1961) is based in New Delhi. She has exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and at the Venice Biennale and she has also published her images in a number of books. Together with Ai Weiwei, Romuald Karmakar and Santu Mofokeng she has recently been invited to represent Germany in the national pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2013.
