Radio Program / Talk, on FM Rainbow (102.6 MHz) – Interview with an artist: Divya Singh.
Divya Singh – b. 1995 – is a visual artist, from New Delhi, India. Her practice is primarily rooted in painting and explores themes such as isolation, experience, memory and mortality – emanating largely from a poetic engagement with Time. Mediums such as photography, writing, cinema and painting are at the center of her language as a practitioner and have featured as important categories of both work and interest. These varied elements come together within the work and can be seen most distinctly in the artist books made by her, as well as in found imagery which accompanies the paintings and other media during exhibitions. Singh had her first Solo in 2021 with Shrine Empire Gallery (Notes for Tomorrow) and has participated in many group shows and art fairs, nationally and internationally including Artissima International Fair of Contemporary Art, Turin, Italy (2021) Delhi Contemporary Art Week at Bikaner House, New Delhi (2021-22) India Art Fair, New Delhi (2022-23) and ‘Limitrophy’ by Foreign Objekt+Posthuman Art Network(2021). She is a recipient of the Space 118 Fine Art Grant (2021) and was awarded the “Young Artist of the Year Award‟ (2022) as part of the first edition of HELLO! India Magazine‟s ‘India Art Awards’. Singh was a resident with Foreign Objekt’s (Online) Posthuman Lab (Artist Research Residents 2022) Her Projects engage with matters concerning Decolonial Imagination, The Matrixial, Ethics and Spirituality. Two of her Posthuman Visual Art Projects as part of her artistic research are: Tachyon (2021) and Terminarch/Ender (2022-Ongoing) available for viewing on the Posthuman Art Network website and platforms.
