Bharati Kher Exhibition

Vancouver Art Gallery had an exhibition of Bharti Kher’s work on display at the same time as Picasso.

While I found some of her work disturbing, I was drawn to Matter, bindis on mirror. The beautifully crafted designed overlapped with shattered mirror to represent breaking with tradition.

Bharati Kher’s Six Women from Bengal

Equally inspiring, was her Six Women who represented aging bodies rather than the typical young female represented in the media. Her subjects were prostitutes whom she paid to be cast in plaster. It was hard not to feel for the grim expressions of each of the women.
