Bharti Kher (Jack Shainman Gallery)

London-born, Delhi-based Bharti Kher is becoming known for her evocative, layered sculptures and paintings, which explore identity and multiplicity. Featured here is a series inspired by a 1928 autopsy of a blue sperm whale, which Kher has spun into imagery conflating Indian traditions with gothic, punk and camp elements.
