Neha Choksi’s latest work, Strata bouquet (uncertain allies), inherits the artist’s interest in an interaction with the natural world and its consideration of time, the human bodies’ laboring, and extraction. 

 

Choksi describes creating an “impossible spatial relationship” in time and space by flipping the horizontality associated with strata to a vertical orientation, anchoring yet levitating the installation of seven boulders, canvases, color pigment and steel mirror. The artist further expands the relationship of time and space through references of Dutch still life paintings, sourcing of the boulders from different places around the country, and pigment color—all drawn from the artist’s actions of coring, grinding, and extraction throughout the making of the work. Presenting an unexpected still life, Choksi collapses time and space to expand the experience of our relationship to the earth. 

 

Neha Choksi (b. 1973, Belleville, New Jersey, she/her) embraces a confluence of disciplines, including performance, video, installation, and sculpture to set up poetic and absurd interventions in everyday life—from stone to plant, animal to self, friends to institutions. Choksi’s work has been exhibited or performed at the Kleefeld Contemporary Museum, Various Small Fires, the Hammer Museum, Dhaka Art Summit, Armory Center for the Arts, and Whitechapel Gallery, among others. Choksi received her double BA in Greek and in Art from the University of California, Los Angeles, and an MA in classics from Columbia University.
