Pallavi Paul from New Delhi has been selected through a competitive open call for applications for Delfina Foundation’s summer residency programme.  In partnership with the Charles Wallace India Trust and Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation Residency, Delfina Foundation received nearly 160 applications from emerging artists in India.

Working primarily with video and the installation form, Pallavi Paul is deeply engaged in the technologies of poetry and time travel. Using the disruption between ‘reality image’ and ‘reality affect’ as a starting point, she attempts to create a laboratory of possibilities which test the contours of fantasy, resistance, politics and history.

Pallavi will be joining Phillipe Gruenberg as part of a collaboration with MATE, Museo Mario Testino; Ayesha Sultana, winner of the Samdani Art Award 2014; Hera Büyüktaşçıyan; Behnam Sadighi, MOPCAP 2013 winner; and Luiz Roque with the support of Coleção Moraes-Barbosa. Delfina Foundation will also host a one-month educational programme for four Azeri artists with YARAT this summer.
