Neha Choksi received her MA in Classics from Columbia University, New York and her BAs in Greek and in Art from the University of California, Los Angeles. Neha Choksi’s art presents a materially bound search for absence. She approaches the processes of absenting, erasing, shrinking, exhausting, disappearing through an artwork’s need to have presence. Her workconsiders how to focus presence through reduction and erasure, what is left out and what is left in. The work often has a poetic and absurd flavour leavened with the tragi-comic. In the last few months Choksi’s work has been presented by the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Frieze Art Fair’s Sculpture Park, and the Generali Foundation, Vienna. In 2012 her work will be shown at the Enclave Gallery, London, the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, and will be included in the Asia Pacific Triennial at the Queensland Art Gallery. Her works are in notable public and private collections. Her work is represented by Project 88, Mumbai. She currently
lives and works in Mumbai.
