Neha Choksi

30 September 2017 –  25 February 2018

In her new work Choksi tests her belief that to learn to be oneself, one always needs others.

Neha Choksi sets up simple yet memorable situations to create poetic, absurd and psychologically engaging works. Her new multi-channel film installation features the artist and her friends. Exploring the relationship between herself and her community, she tests her belief that to learn to be oneself, one always needs others. The film has been shot on the construction site for an expansive and modernizing Jain ashram in India. Inventing open ended and playful situations for her participants, Choksi examines the connections and tensions between solitude and collaboration.

Choksi lives and works in Los Angeles and Mumbai and has exhibited extensively in galleries, museums, festivals, biennales and film screenings worldwide.
