Sohrab Hura (b. 1981, West Bengal, India) lives and works in New Delhi, India. Hura uses an autobiographical approach to engage with the wider world through publications,photography, film, text and sound. His early work explores his relationship with his mother who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, while his recent work reflects the volatility of contemporary India. In his recent series, the vivid and startling images depict moments that seem out of control, slapstick and hallucinatory. Recent exhibitions and screenings include Cincinnati Art Museum, USA (2019); Kettle’s Yard, UK (2019); Videonale.17, Germany (2019); and Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, Germany (2018).
