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? Or are we defined ourselves in the act of viewing? How do we categorize things as beautiful or base? For Kher, art is “not simply depicting reality but transforming objects,” creating in the process new ways of understanding the world around us.
