Photography: Yamini Nayar's an axe for a wing-bone
This new body of work continues Nayar’s process-oriented practice, further highlighting her method of construction and destruction, where the finally selected photographic recording might not be an end result but chosen from a state "in between." This is particularly evident in a series of four black-and-white small-scale studies, different iterations of a makeshift room where common elements take on roles that change from image to image.
Yamini Nayar's other exhibitions include: Migrating Identities, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, 2013; Harpoon, (solo) Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai; second nature: abstract photography then and now, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; Sculpture is Everything, Queensland Art Gallery, Australia, all 2012; Always the Young Strangers, Higher Pictures, NY; The Influentials, School of Visual Arts, NY, both 2011; The Empire Strikes Back, Saatchi Museum, London; Tough Pictures, Cincinnati Art Museum, OH, both 2010;
