About Tejal Shah
Working across diverse media such as video, photography, performance, sound, installation, and drawing, Tejal Shah positions her work within a feminist and queer framework. She is currently interested in the intersections of art, ecology and healing in relation to consciousness. Her works also focus on topics of sex, sexuality, body, gender and natureculture while challenging normative social hegemonies. Her latest project, The Balcão, is unraveling a new thread in her praxis. It’s a shape shifting, collaborative and community experiment in embodied learning on a small piece of land in Goa, India.
