Sudipta Das’ practice revolves around the tenacity, fragility and importance that paper has in the lives of people and how it shapes their identity. Using the medium as a metaphor, the artist experiments with, shapes and transforms paper into doll-like sculptures that each narrate a story of their own. From migrations both forced and voluntary to climate change, from identity crisis to recording historic events and diaspora, the artist touches upon the calamities that befall those in transience as they seek refuge after having lost all they ever had and all they have ever known. The artist who is originally from Assam, takes inspiration from her own life and family. She now lives and works in Baroda.
