Indu ANTONY

 

Indu Antony (1982– ) is a Bangalore-based multidisciplinary artist. Born and raised in a conventional Indian family from Kerala, she had to overcome social obligations to pursue her art practice. Antony’s practice encompasses a feminist outlook that seeks to change patriarchal societal notions as she tackles stereotypes and taboos in the social, political and cultural spheres of India. Antony has been part of national and international residencies and has had group and solo exhibitions in India and abroad, including the Serendipity Arts Festival in 2018; Foto Fest Biennale, Houston in 2018; Queer Asia Photo Exhibition, London in 2017 and Photo Kathmandu, Nepal in 2015. She was the recipient of the Public Art Grant from the Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art in 2019 and the Toto Funds the Arts Award for Photography in 2011.
