Inder Salim is a conceptual performance artist and poet. Born in Kashmir in the early 1960s.
For 25 years, Salim’s ground-breaking, body-centric work has had few parallels: a multidisciplinary artist using video and photography as well as Internet interfaces to expand upon his bodily interventions, Inder Salim has foregrounded the role of art as activism. Reflecting upon the relationship between art and its relevance to the world he lives in, Inder Salim has performed at different venues in India and abroad, and was a Sarai Independent Fellow in 2006-07. He organised Art Karavan International in 2010, where 30 artists from India and aboard travelled for two and a half months through nine cities in Northern India, with the objective of experimenting with open-ended interactive processes of art. His performance will be specifically devised for SACRED:Homelands.
access to performance by day ticket only: Saturday 26 November, 16.30 (2 hours)
