Anywhere But Here

Shubhangi Singh

Anywhere But Here explores the meaning of home while attempting to break away from the ideas of romantic nostalgia nesting within its traditional definitions. In the process, the piece attempts to complicate the understanding of an abode in relation to one’s own developing, pivoting and transitioning identity. The work also further questions accumulation, abundance and cycles of desire within the scope of movement and possession.

Shubhangi Singh’s practice as a visual artist and filmmaker responds to contemporary politics and the interconnectedness of production and reproduction of popular everyday material within the socio-political structures. She often draws upon experiences to address movement and identity as well as queries related to the feminine and its position within society, thus extending the discourse onto the public sphere. Singh attempts to consistently consolidate her formal training in films with her transdisciplinary practice to continually create and collaborate. Her works include video, text, lecture-performances, sketches and mixed media installations while her interests range from (un)materiality, folktales and the vague blurring between fact and fiction. Singh is the co-founder of New City Limits, an initiative to facilitate creative viewing and practice in Navi Mumbai, India and currently lives and works in Helsinki.
