Sonia Khurana

Sonia Khurana was born in 1968 in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh. She studied at the Delhi College of Art, New Delhi and the Royal College of Art, London on an INLAKS grant. Her need to go beyond painting has led her towards a variety of media including film, video, photography, performance and installations. A great deal of her work is  in video, which is often the end result of a performance. She uses the temporality of the medium to interrogate the vulnerability of secret desires. Her impulse is to employ the body as a site of contestation even while seeking the self as a form of excess and redundancy. This results in a constant reinvention of the self, marked by a tragic-comic tenor. Currently, she is at the Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. Sonia Khurana lives and works in New Delhi and Amsterdam.
