Amitesh Grover (b.1980) is a performance-based artist in New Delhi, India. His works move beyond theatre, into visual arts, films, photography, installations, and processes. He performs, directs, writes, curates, and keeps his practice firmly anchored in the politics of performance. His works point towards ephemeral grounds of knowledge like grief, sleep, care, and work. Through his practice, he explores proximity – the conditions of being close/nearby – as a radical form of performance. He often invites his viewers to participate in his work and respond to a set of philosophical and artistic provocations. His works are shown internationally in theatres, galleries, public spaces, and on the internet. He is the recipient of several awards including MASH FICA New Media Artist award, FORECAST Emerging Artist (HKW Germany), Arte Laguna Prize nomination (Italy), Bismillah Khan National award (India) among others. He has been on numerous international artist-residencies and has spoken about his work on prominent global platforms. He writes prolifically, works in a hybrid environment, and teaches at various art universities.
