Biography

Nisha Duggal is an artist working across media to explore expressions of freedom and creativity in the everyday.  She is inspired by the world around her, particularly looking at and learning from other people, and how they find time in their lives for playfulness and invention.  Her workshops are positive and poetic, finding new ways to interact with the traditional and interpret the present.

Recent projects have seen her re-imagine an historic lecture by William Morris on the importance of everyday craft (Forcing Tastes), create a series of drawings derived from selfies of men displaying their catch (#fishing), release hundreds of silver helium balloons into the rafters of a working church (In order to acquire a void) and interview people about their everyday hobbies (Things to make and do).

Nisha’s films and drawings have exhibited internationally including installations at Watermans (London), Arnolfini (Bristol), Ginza Art Lab (Tokyo), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead) and Oriel Mostyn (Llandudno) with screenings at London Short Film Festival, Videobabel (Cusco, Peru), European Media Art Festival (Osnabrueck, Germany), Rekalde (Bilbao, Spain), Cornerhouse (Manchester) and Iniva (London).  She studied Fine Art at Derby and The Slade.
