GETTING TO KNOW Anita Kumari

Curator's Note

"Anita Kumari has a unique take on the world around her. We chose her work for its transformative effect on mundane items of everyday life like votive objects, toys and the rustic iron-press into iconic objects. In this series she relives her childhood memories and the joy she experienced in her grandmother’s lap listening to a lullaby. Her artworks bear the feel of carnival from her native in Bihar, laced with recollections of musical memories of devotional and folk songs sung during festivals and while doing daily chores. Her figures are intricately woven in Sikki art manner that is the trade mark of women of the region. Anita has trained at Jamia Mila Islamia and Patna University and has shown across the country."
