Anousha Payne (b. 1991) graduated from Camberwell College of Arts with a BA in 2014. Her work explores the boundaries between personal experience, fiction and myth. Informed by Indian folklore, work often centers on characters from Indian folklore who display transformative qualities, playing on ideas of chance, moral dilemma, magic, animism and the performative powers of objects. Solo and two person exhibitions include Tangled toes, twisted ears at Public Gallery in London, UK; As she laughs at Cooke Latham in London, UK; and, and here she dwells at Indigo+Madder in London, UK. Recent exhibitions include Midsummer Night’s Dream at Alkinois in Athens, Greece; Hawala at Paradise Row in London, UK; Vessels at Island Gallery in Brussels, Belgium; Into the Soft at C4 Projects in Copenhagen, Denmark; and, HOT MILK at Post_Institute in London, UK, curated by Lucy Von Goetz and Oliver Morris Jones. Payne has been a resident at Cravieral Farmhouse, Portugal; London Bronze Editions, London, UK; Fores Project in London, UK; and Villa Lena in Tuscany, Italy. Commissions include 'Darling, Look' for The Absence of Paths, in conjunction with Tunisia Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale.
