Ayisha Abraham’s work includes installations, short digital films and artist’s books. Much of her work has been about looking for and working with found material–old photographs and 8mm home movies. She plays with the original form by cutting, repositioning, repeating images and sound, and by changing the scale she transports the viewer into confronting a world where the everyday begins to look strange and unfamiliar. Her work engages with notions of memory, history, migration and the natural world.
Ayisha Abraham’s art is conceptual and addresses audiences at home and internationally. She works at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology and has been a member of the artist’s collective Bar1 (Bengaluru Artist’s Residency).
