Moumita Basak hails from a village in Burdwan where she recognises her relationship with her home weighs heavier than with her external environment. It is her entanglement with nature and the acknowledgement of how she strays from it everyday that inspires her work. She speaks of the common empathy we all feel and expresses how in some ways we are all related to each other. Her work resonates themes of experience, memories and familiar surroundings. It is these spaces that she inhabits that inspire her practice. She speaks of loneliness as a friend that everyone has. A relationship strife with turmoil, disturbance and yet joyous and peaceful. These emotions with her loneliness also percolate into her practice. Moumita Basak is doing her MFA from Government College of Art and Craft, Calcutta University and currently lives in Kolkata.
