Garima Tripathi

Garima Tripathi (b. 1987) works in sculptures, public art installations and prints. Garima learned pottery from traditional potters in Dharavi, Mumbai and sculpting in the US at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She completed her MFA from Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford, UK. Garima’s work addresses gendered struggles in India and the possibility of agency within that system. Her practice is to heal the gendered wounds of familial neglect, and/or unrecognized emotional/physical labour. She questions the notions of home, rest, and access to play through intimate objects from the everyday such as doormats or pan scrubbers as well as large-scale installations inspired by the Banyan Trees. Through her installations, Garima aims to create ‘dream spaces’ that make the invisible visible and the inaudible loud. These dream spaces are both a venture into courageous fantasies and messy nightmares. She has created permanent installations for Harvard University’s ceramic studio, Anneberg Kulturpark in Denmark and IIT Bombay, India.
