Performance Art by Inder Salim

15th October, 2013



Inder Salim is a poet, sculptor and a performance artist from New Delhi. Inder provokes his audiences on issues of contemporary politics in India through his performance.

This experience and experiment with the body allows Inder to explore his world around through performance art or harkat, as he calls it. It gives him freedom to experiment with the material objects lying around, and with his own body. Significantly, it is not only about the physicality but also about the concept that underlines his being and becoming. Later, he joined a residency at the Delhi based SARAI and received a wider platform to carry out his work. With rigor and commitment, Inder has been trying to reach out to larger audiences outside cities with his work. He now brings this, Harkat to Space118, Mumbai.
