Biography Bharti Kher
As ancient symbol of beauty, marital status and spiritual awareness, millions of women across the Indian subcontinent apply the bindi to their foreheads every day. Multi-media conceptual artist Bharti Kher says she began applying bindis to much of her recent work following a revelation in 1995, when she encountered a woman wearing a serpent-shaped bindi on her forehead.
Since then, she has appropriated and redeployed the bindi as powerful signifier, a means of transfiguring and recontextualizing the dreamy and beastly images and objects that populate her dense, swirling sculptures, paintings and installations. Overlaid upon objects big and small, sacred and divine, they invoke a sense of migratory flow, building and dissipating in complChristie's, Mumbai
