Artist Interview: Usha Seejarim

Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

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.
