Artist Talk: Gauri Gill

15 May 2024

The Photographers’ Gallery
London W1F 7LW


Photographer Gauri Gill discusses her nominated work Fields of Sight, giving insight into her collaboration with artist Rajesh Vangad and their complex depictions of India

Hear photographer Gauri Gill in this new event as she talks through Fields of Sight, which she produced with Rajesh Vangad, her collaborator and co-nominee for this year’s Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize. The project is an exploration of decolonisation, memory and environmental change through photography and drawing. Starting in Ganjad, Dahanu, Gauri’s photographs of the coastal town were later given to Rajesh to inscribe and embellish, reconfiguring them with people, streets, architecture, showing us the generational changes the land has undergone.

Joined by curator and art historian Devika Singh, Gauri will offer insights into her distinctive collaboration with the renowned Warli artist and how, together, they approached viewing and depicting the landscape through many layers of truth and history.
