Orbit of fantasy: Nalini Malani’s transgressive play at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

By Uma Nair | Architectural Digest India

An artist who uses fictional tools and chimerical visuals to emphasise the real and the political. An Indian woman artist who has had the largest number of solo shows throughout the world and was a pioneer in introducing the video as a seminal medium in her art. Nalini Malani's Trangressions at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam is an amalgam of video/shadow play. She builds on diverse experiments with media to create multilayered, experiential installations that invite viewers to enter her orbit of fantasy.
