Proxies: Princess Pea

9-12 February, 2018

India Art Fair Grounds

Princess Pea, the anonymous artist and living sculpture with a not-so-pea-sized head, brings us Proxies – a work based on the  idea that the self exists by proxy, concealing a  presence that is embryonic, infantile or even  someone who might have been but never got  born. Through performance, image, prose and  poetry she is consistently in the quest of this  self, this unborn presence, perhaps as a proxy.  Her characters are actors who project their lives and personal legends through the character of Princess Pea – a mould that could fit anybody. Using the home as a simile and setting for the  heart to play its desires, the various Princess  proxies are engaged in collecting time, memory,  desire, hope, perseverance and ultimately  destiny.
