Vinu V.V. (b. 1974) is an artist based in Kochi, India. Vinu received a Diploma in Fine Arts (Sculpture) from the R.L.V College of Fine Arts, Tripunithura, Kochi in 1998. His works often take the form of sculptural installations and paintings. Vinu has had a longstanding Engagement with Marginal Histories from the subcontinent, such as alternative knowledge traditions, and histories of social and political struggles. His work deploys the transgressive potential of languages which resist conventional categorisations such as Secular and Religious, Mythic and Historical, and Reason and Faith. Vinu held his first solo show titled Parting the Sea of Hell, which consisted of works in painting and sculptural installations, held at Buddha Art Gallery, Fort Kochi. In 2016, he was invited to participate in the 14th Shanghai Biennale by curators Raqs Media Collective. Here, he presented the sculptural installation Noon Rest. This work subsequently entered the collection of Power Station of Art, Shanghai (2017). More recently, he was invited by curator Anita Dube to participate in the fourth edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (2018-19).
