What’s On: Shilpa Gupta

Some artists develop a signature style which helps the internet-addled, image-weary viewer recognise their work from the earliest clicks onwards, but Mumbai’s Shilpa Gupta’s intriguing portfolio has little discernible commonality. Working in video, sculpture, photography, sound and installations, her pieces explore themes from censorship to security, desire to militarism. Her new show at Bristol’s Arnolfini combines older work like the oddly-organic 4,000 microphone Singing Cloud to Someone Else, a new project looking at authors’ anonymity. Long live eclecticism, especially when it’s done in such intelligent, visually-arresting ways.

The show runs until April 22.
