Smita Sen: Embodied

Overview

Smita Sen is a sculptor and performance artist who is known for working with sculpture, dance performances as well as using advanced technology to create photographs and videography to research how to the body moves depending on the environment and feeling.

In Smita’s forthcoming exhibition with MOCA will explore and feature Smita’s use of her dance-based performances and how she developed sculptures and drawing based on her movements in her early and most recent works.

The use of advanced technology and 3D models like her series, Feelings, Fossiizled came from a time of injury when she was unable to complete large scale performances and used technology as a way create sculptures without comprising her body. Smita’s work in the end is an attempt to understand the resilience and malleability of the body by continuously finding support in its healing mechanisms.
