Vanita Gupta’s Breathe In, Breathe Out: A Medley in Spatial Registers explores the relationship between continuity and rupture, gravity and lightness, and the potentially infinite extension of shape and the concrete finitude of mass. Experimenting with contrasting materials that bend and yield, and integrating multiple forms including drawing, video projection and the three dimensionality of a sculpture, Vanita realizes an artwork on a life-size scale that offers the observer an interactive and immersive experience.
Vanita Gupta received an ACC Fellowship in 2014 to research contemporary art in the United States.
