Karan Shrestha divides his time between Nepal and India. His works overlays encounters in physical landscapes over that of mental maps of people and spaces he comes across so as to examine and restructure notions of the ‘present’. His practice incorporates drawings, sculpture, photography, text, film and video. With stories of every day and every people, his work seeks to blur opposites that build and define our individual and collective identities.
Shrestha has shown his work at the Sharjah Film Platform; Art Heritage Gallery, New Delhi; Jawaharkala Kendra, Jaipur; Prometeo Gallery, Milan; the Yinchuan Biennale; Photo.Kathmandu; Kathmandu Triennale; Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa; The Arkipel, Jakarta; Delfina Foundation, London; International Kurzfilmtage Winterthur.
