Atul Bhalla | Studio Residency 2009

Switzerland | Visual Arts

10 April - 29 June 2009 — Visual Arts

Residency location: Basel
Partner Organisation: iaab, Basel

Atul Bhalla is a conceptual artist working with environmental issues, particularly on water, for more than two decades. His work invites the audience to engage directly with urban and metropolitan spaces, and in particular water resources, in his city New Delhi, and those he visits during the course of international exhibitions and residencies.

Primarily using photography the artist explores histories and associative meanings of sites of everyday living, building narratives through performance and many times using text as well. He has published two books on his performance works, Yamuna Walk by University Washington Press, and What will be my Defeat by GFLK Galerie für Lanschaftskunst Hamburg.
