Abhishek Hazra

Abhishek Hazra is an artist based in Bangalore, India. His close yet idiosyncratic study of the historiography of science has led him to examine various technologies of knowledge production and dispersion. He uses video, performance and prints that often integrate textual fragments drawn from real and fictional scenarios. The idea of the thought experiment – where one thinks of things and non-things without necessarily being trapped in things – has always fascinated him. Hazra’s work has been shown Science Gallery, Dublin, KHOJ, New Delhi, Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo, GALLERYSKE, Bangalore, Kunstmuseum Bern and various other contexts.
