Shubha Taparia
Artist / Photographer

Shubha Taparia has been living and working in London since 2001. She studied at Bal Wad Studios in Pune, India and completed her Masters In Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London, in 2007.

Working with her own compilations of ‘the everyday’ and the urban environment, representations of history, power and globalization are brought to the forefront in all their irony and precariousness through her practice, which spans; photography, performance video, mixed media, painting and installation. With references to older texts and art forms, she tries to find a sense of universality, crossing cultures and localities, exploring the meaning of loss and impermanence and the consequences of human action in relation to the value of histories and the willingness to discard shared heritage in the name of an uncertain future.

Her most recent exhibitions include: Silhouette of an Unknown Landscape (open studio and site-specific installation) at the artist’s studio, London (2018); Title to be Decided (Performance) at the Averard Hotel, London (2018); Prossalendi’s Britannia – Contemporary Perspective at the Ionian Academy, Corfu (2018); Point of Apoapsis curated by Shubha Taparia at Prahlad Bubbar Gallery, London (2017); Landscape and Silence, a collateral project of Kochi – Murziris Beinnale (2016); Averard Hotel with Slate Projects, London (2016); selected for Film Screenings at Washington Artworks, Maryland, USA (2016); solo show See In Your Mind’s Eye at Kashi Art Gallery in Kochi, India (2015). She was as a finalist for The Creekside Open 2013 selected by Paul Noble and hosted by APT Galleries, London UK (2013), as well as a finalist for the Mostyn Open at Mostyn Galleries, Llandudno, UK (2011). Her works are in various private and institutional collections in the UK, Italy, Portugal, India and Canada.

    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
