Bharat Sikka (b.1973 New Delhi, India)
born and raised in India, where he began his photographic practice before studying at the parson’s school of design, NY. Sikka’s long-term photographic projects have centered on the cultural residues and societal transformations within India, rendered with the visual language and material forms of contemporary art photography. His work subtly speaks to India’s history and regionality (of Kashmir, where the flowers still grow), the tide of globalization (matter), and masculinity (Indian men). Sikka has participated in many exhibitions including The Sapper (solo), Unseen Amsterdam, 2019; Reimagine (solo), Photoworks festival & Brighton festival, 2016; Where Three Dreams Cross: 150 Years Of Photography From India – Pakistan And Bangladesh (group), Whitechapel Gallery (London) & Fotomuseum Winterthur(Switzerland),2010; Space In-between, Les Rencontres d’Arles, France,2007; Paris Photo and Anne De Villepoix (Paris), 2006.
Philippe Calia (b.1985 Paris, France)
an artist, photographer, and filmmaker who has been living and working in India since 2011. His works are set within an eclectic documentary practice that privileges long-term involvement and mixes photography, video, and text. Interweaving themes of memory, time, and history, his processes focus on vernacular forms of expression, between “objets trouvés” and residual documents. The act of representing eventually becomes a reflexive one: approached through negation, it focuses on spaces in which the Image is either threatened with a disappearance or prohibited altogether. Since 2013, Calia has been collaborating with PIX as a photo editor and researcher. Between 2015 and 2020, he co-directed BIND, a platform for photography in India with a public photobook library.
Indu Antony （b. 1982 Kerala, India）
Indu Antony is an artist based out of Bangalore and Kerala, India. Born and raised in a conventional Indian family she overcame various social obligations to pursue her forms of expression. She has hence been working with individuals from the fringes of society. She is known to explore tonalities of inward discussions which later on bursts out into the communal spaces. Her work primarily revolves around the notion of spaces and their intangible character in relation to the gendered body as a site of representation by understanding feministic stands which give way to performances and installations. Indu Antony has participated in several group exhibitions including the Serendipity Arts Festival, 2018; Kochi-Muziris Biennale (Collateral), 2018-19; Foto Fest Biennale, Houston, 2018; Queer Asia Photo Exhibition, London, 2017 and Photo Kathmandu, Nepal, 2015. She won the Toto funds Award for photography for the year 2011.
