Usha Seejarim recasts the ordinary as something worthy of attention. In her videos and installations, she slows down our looking and injects a sense of wonder into subjects as seemingly pedestrian as bus tickets, rice sacks, car lights, and morning shadows. Her work is a unique combination of aesthetic transformation, urban concerns, and her own Indian heritage.
Seejarim was featured in the Walker Art Center’s exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age. For more information about the artist and her work, visit http://latitudes.walkerart.org/artists/index.wac?id=149.
