Artists:

Jit Natta is an interdisciplinary art practitioner and researcher whose works are rooted in Bengal's performative and folk traditions. His project Natta Company 0.4.1 explores the history of Natta Company, well known in the Bengal Jatra Movement. Using characters such as Binodini from popular Jatra pieces, and by changing the protocols of staging and re-engaging the Natta community, his project aims to agitate the traditional hegemony and imagine new futures ahead.

Mahesh Mothe works with the agency, personality and expressiveness of machines. His work creates opportunities for machines to attempt existence unbound from utilitarian and aesthetic responsibilities. His usually untitled projects explore machinistic assertions through parallels between the act of moving and marking, the nature and politics of automatons and the drawn lines themselves.

Sewali Deka’s work reflects on the affective forces informing rural life and cultures, especially the collective model of work often espoused by farmers and craftspeople. Her present work "If I am a Leopard" underscores the interplay between ecological health and conservation practices, the survival and coexistence of humans, with leopard habitats.

Anup Let is practicing in a new medium: producing and reflecting on the 'Queer Landscape', a community-oriented perspective on queer life in Delhi and West Bengal. His current project called "A landscape of hope, healing and transformation" explores the socio-political, cultural, and emotional aspects of this terrain by integrating mediums like self-publishing books, clothes, sketches, sculptural objects, photography, and various forms of embodied performance.

This project is a hosting and mentoring collaboration between CAMP and Urvar and Studio ON.
