About

KAJOLI was born and grew up in Bangladesh. She studied Fine Art at Dhaka University (1998) and has a Masters degree in that subject from Visva-Bharati University in West Bengal, India (2003).

 

In her – ever evolving –  artistic practice, KAJOLI experiments with different media, from photography and drawing to live performance, exploring issues of feminism, body politics and cross-cultural identity.

 

Through her art, she engages with the cultural expectations and ideological restrictions that confront her as a woman, as an artist and as an immigrant. Negotiating barriers of language – as well as staging her ‘otherness’ -  she communicates using her body, gestural mark making, painting and voice.

 

KAJOLI  now lives and works in London, UK to where she relocated in 2006.
