About the artist:
Sharu B. Sikdar
Sikdar is a Hong Kong born Indian Filipino artist. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2017 at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Hong Kong. Sikdar’s artistic practice is repetitive and labour-intensive as she collects, assembles, deconstructs and reconstructs found objects. She utilises natural materials such as branches, barks and leaves. She is currently exploring her hair as a medium, tapping into the relations between the body and nature, personal growth and the ephemeral.
