Description

Bharti Kher: The Trick is Living is a three-part publication, recording the wide arc of artist Bharti Kher’s practice that is inspired by a wide range of sources and making practices. Central themes within her work include the notion of the self as formed by multiple and interlocking relationships with human and animal bodies, places and readymade objects.

Kher has maintained a way of working that remains resolutely exploratory, as she tries to find the equilibrium of several forces in her art and execute the idea of transformation, where she activates materials to give them a new form. Kher is known internationally for her signature use of the bindi in works across painting and sculpture.

The Trick is Living Vol. 1

124 pages, 106 illustrations

7.48 x 10” (189 x 255 mm), hc-plc

ISBN: 978-93-85360-64-0

Rs.1950 | $35 | £27

The first volume is an eponymous catalogue edition which introduces readers to Kher’s vast oeuvre, spanning sculpture, painting, and installation work, via a series of essays by leading interdisciplinary commentators.

 

Sketchbooks, Diaries and Works on Paper Vol. 2

132 pages, 129 illustraions

7.48 x 10” (189 x 255 mm), hc-plc

ISBN: 978-93-85360-65-7

Rs.1950 | $35 | £27

The second, more intimate, volume reproduces Kher’s sketchbooks, diaries and written memorabilia, highlighting the primal knowledge contained in the “drawing hand” as a potent power in the act of creation. This notion is explored further in a full-length interview between the editor Aveek Sen and the artist.

 

Selected Bindi Works Vol. 3

152 pages, 87 illustraions

7.48 x 10” (189 x 255 mm), hc-plc

ISBN: 978-93-85360-66-4

Rs.1950 | $35 | £27

The third and concluding volume focuses exclusively on the medium that is most famously associated with Kher—the bindi. Featuring a selection of early paintings and bindi works made over the artist’s twenty-five year career, in an order that is neither chronological nor thematic, the book deploys its own distinct editorial rhythm in order to reorient the ways in which viewers may read Kher’s spectacularly seductive works.

 

Bharti Kher is a contemporary artist based in New Delhi. Her way of working is radically heterogeneous, wherein central themes are the notion of the self as formed by multiple and interlocking relationships with human and animal bodies, places and readymade objects.

Aveek Sen writes on art and photography. He was Associate Editor at The Telegraph, Calcutta, and has previously taught English literature at St Hilda’s College, University of Oxford.
