Gitanjali Bhatt

Bio:

Gitanjali Bhatt (b. 1999 UK) is a multi-disciplinary artist, based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
 
Gitanjali 's work merges lens, moving image, construction, sculpture and installation based makings. E
xperimental ways of viewing offer ways to challenge norms of regarding the everyday landscape, nature, and other surrounding entities. Through her works she seeks to welcome other, trivialised ideologies into conversation, alongside other systems that break down dogmas that dictate ways society ought to regard their analogous counterparts.

Gitanjali is currently undergoing  MFA studies at Whitecliffe College.
