Dayanita Singh


Dayanita Singh (b. 1961) is an artist based in Delhi, India. She uses photography to reflect and expand on the ways in which we relate to images. Her recent works, drawn from her extensive photographic oeuvre, are a series of mobile museums that allow her images to be edited, sequenced, archived and displayed. Stemming from Singh’s interest in the archive, she presents her photographs as interconnected bodies of work that are replete with both poetic and narrative possibilities. Publishing is also a significant part of the artist’s practice. In her books, often published without text, Singh extends her experiments on alternate forms of producing and viewing photographs. Her works have been exhibited internationally in museums, biennales and festivals and collected by museums and private collections around the world.
