Vasudhaa Narayanan explores the complexities of identity, domesticity and gender through conceptual photographs, sculptural elements and performance. Her work is situated within the context of an Indian diaspora, narrativizing the displacement and isolation of being an outsider in one's own home. She is interested in confronting ideas of otherness within the patriarchal frameworks of culture and provokes one to question their biases towards the female abject.
Narayanan is the co-founder of JAGAH Collective. Through group exhibitions, performances, and self-published works created by artists within diverse South Asian communities, the goal of the collective is to encourage artists to reveal and uncover complex narratives rooted in South Asia.
Vasudhaa Narayanan (b. 1991, Bangalore, India) lives and works in San Francisco, CA. She has exhibited internationally at venues such as Southern Exposure (San Francisco, CA), Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts - Project Space (New York, NY); the Goethe Institut (India); and recently throughout San Francisco including the Bass and Reiner (San Francisco, CA).
