YAMINI NAYAR'S works intersect photography, sculpture and the language of architecture to foreground questions of the built environment, its social and psychological dimensions and the body. In her studio-based practice, photographs are documents made from mixed media assemblages and installations, in which the photograph is the only trace of an invested process of physical construction. Temporality, materiality, translation and performance are central to her work, as is the hand. Her projects have explored memory, migration, informal architecture and dwellings, modernist architecture, and alternate & imagined modernities.
