Gunjan Gupta

Gunjan Gupta’s engagement with cultural paradoxes is communicated via an ongoing art and design practice that often questions assumptions about Indian class myth, and the contrast between master craft and jugaad. With a trademark playful approach towards material and form, her work represents new applications of India’s handmade and craft vernacular. Through serendipitous occurrences that emerge from iterative play and stacking disparate objects and materials, she reveals the delicate interplay between India’s cultural contradictions. Her perspectives on India are communicated via collectible design objects, curatorial roles, and an ongoing practice that questions the rules of society, hierarchy, and ultimately, oneself.
