Autograph Gallery, Shoreditch, is exhibiting the work of Indian artist and activist Poulomi Basu from 4 March to 4 June.
Using photography, video and sound, Basu explores the relationship between mother and daughter, navigating themes of trauma and defiance centred around patriarchal violence.
Basu is known for her work advocating for the rights of marginalised women using the power of photography as a tool for storytelling. The artist and her mother feature prominently throughout the exhibition, oscillating between lone figures and delicately composed portraits in which their bodies embrace.
An intimate journey of generational healing, this exhibition fits into Autograph Gallery’s mission of amplifying and championing issues of human rights and social justice through photography.
