Tarini Sethi (b 1989, Delhi) studied art at Pratt institute in New York City and is currently based between New Delhi and Goa, India. Through her art, she explores themes of human intimacy breaking the taboo of body-consciousness and sexuality. Her work constantly revolves around the idea of “Utopias” and draws inspiration from myths and folk tales alongside twists and turns of modern day politics. Her work unveils identity while exploring sexuality within personal spaces, both architectural and cerebral.
Working mostly with ink on paper and sculptural methodologies, Sethi exposes the imbalance of human relationships with each other and with the natural world. The shadows cast on the wall reveal a Utopic space far from our own, where life seems closer to perfect, bridging the ever-growing gap of kinship.
