Bio

Aakriti Chandervanshi [b. 1995] is a visual artist, curator and designer from India whose work spans unique geographies and is embedded in the contexts of her everyday in the landscapes of South Asia. As an architectural graduate from Sir J J College of Architecture, Mumbai, the roots of her practice emerge from her keen interest in the historicities of the built environment and relevant debates around the discourse on their conservation. A fellow of the International Photography Programme at Pathshala South Asian Media Institute, Dhaka, her most recent work explores the relationship of the built juxtaposed with the emotional landscape in socio-cultural spaces of Nepal, for which she was awarded runner-up for the Alpine Fellowship Visual Art Prize 2021. Her work has found its space across various acclaimed print and digital publications such as British Journal of Photography, Financial Times, BBC, Domus, among others. Her dissertation explores relating architecture with psychology (titled ‘Animals in Translation). Following this, she designed a Centre for Animal Assisted Therapy, which she’s currently pursuing to bring to life in the present day. She is devoted to her work and pets, perhaps not as equally as she would like.
