Bharti Kher’s provocative art hinges on questioning stereotypes, tearing away veils of prudery and hypocrisy in the process… But beyond the optical experience follow the questions — do we define what we see?

For Kher, art is “not simply depicting reality but transforming objects,” creating in the process new ways of understanding the world around us.
