Mumbai-based Nalini Malani has been making art for 50 years. Concerned with the dispossessed and the voiceless, her work has everything, from Manto to mythology. Nothing and nobody is at odds with each other on her canvases. At the ongoing 58th Venice Biennale, for instance, Malani’s exhibitionRothko in Lampedusa, organised by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees includes installation of five larger-than-life cylinders that hang in space. Recently awarded the 70,000 (Rs 54.5 lakh) Joan Miró Prize, the pathbreaking artist spoke to us about her work.
