Pushpamala N. is a photo and visual artist based in Bangalore, India. Pushpamala formally trained as a sculptor and eventually shifted to photography to explore her interest in narrative figuration. Her work is classified as performance photography, as she frequently uses herself as a model in her own work, using elements that explore place, gender and history.
She is the recipient of many honours, including the National Film Award (1984); Gold medal at the Sixth Triennale, India (1986); Charles Wallace Trust (India) Fellowship (1992–93); Senior Fellowship, Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development (1995–97), Arts Collaboration Grant, India Foundation for the Arts (2000).
Pushpamala N. will be taking us through her journey from a sculptor to a photographer and is one of our first eminent speakers for our Artist Talk series at the Chennai Photo Biennale.
