Wednesday 27 June 17:00-19:00
Munish Wadhia, one of the commissioned artists in the publication “Material som drar”, has been in residency at Köttinspektionen during June. On Wednesday the 27th of June we open the doors to his artistic process. All welcome!
Munish Wadhia’s work at Köttinspektionen focuses on investigation and appropriation of imagery from documents and information extracted from online archives. Using drawing as a way of remembering and tracing to recover hidden knowledges from colonial archives that forms a relation to the present.
Munish Wadhia is an artist based in Stockholm and London. He is a recent graduate with a MA in Fine Art Painting from the Royal College of Art London. He received his BA in Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon College of Art, University Arts London. Munish Wadhia’s work deals with painting through an experimental and interdisciplinary approach where his ideas are concerned with collective memories, inheritance and the amnesiac absence of knowledges in westernised discourses. He uses displacement as an artistic strategy to dislocate and deconstruct imagery and artefacts from his cultural ancestry. He revisits and reconsiders history to reveal the slipperiness of the visual codes and markers of difference that form identities.
