NANDITA KUMAR – Tentacles of Dimensions and Birth of BrainFly
(animated short films) 
27 August 2017 – 22 January 2018

Nandita Kumar is a new-media artist who creates immersive environmental spaces using sound, video, animation and digital technology. Her installations, interactive sculptures and animations seamlessly integrate new media, highlighting contradictions within the techno-industrial revolution and natural landscape.

Pātaka will be exhibiting two of Nandita’s short films: Birth of BrainFly – a surreal exploration of the fragmentation of identity the artist experienced when she migrated from India to New Zealand; and Tentacles of Dimensions – another surreal journey of a brain, now  unplugged from  its cultural programming and indulging purely in the senses.

* Both films include adult content, discretion is advised.
