Who : Amrita Saraogi
When : Friday 10th June 2016 7pm – 9:30pm
Where : East London Printmakers (RSVP)
Amrita, a printmaker from Calcutta, India, and our current resident Project Keyholder, is going to present her work on reflective self-portraits, and her experiments with ‘cracking’ effects for etchings which she has been working on while at ELP. She has explored the relationship between the ‘self’ and space, and how space can trigger self-reflection and new ways of looking at oneself.
Amrita has trained closely under a master printmaker in Calcutta for 2 years. Her recent work largely deals with memories, and associations with private spaces such as bedrooms.
The exhibition will include a display of linocuts and etchings, amongst other media.
