Prajakta Potnis

India

In her practice, which ranges from painting and site-specific installations to public art interventions, Prajakta Potnis effortlessly weaves together the complexities of emotions and the reality of today’s society. Her work oscillates between the intimate world of the individual and the world outside – two spheres which are sometimes separated only by a wall. In her recent work she frames the wall as a witness of history that records traces of inhabitance – a membrane through which imperceptible elements intrude into the private sphere and affect the individual’s psyche. The wall as an architectural element thus becomes a starting point from which the artist addresses individual and social anxieties
