In our fourth and final Instagram take-over of 2021, Hundred Heroines is thrilled to announce from Tuesday 30th November Arpita Shah will be sharing her images.
Arpita Shah (b. 1983, Ahmedabad, India) is a photographic artist based between Edinburgh and Eastbourne, UK. She works between photography and film, exploring the intersections of culture and identity. Arpita spent an earlier part of her life living between India, Ireland and the Middle East before settling in the UK.
This migratory experience is reflected in her practice, which often focuses on the notion of home, belonging and shifting cultural identities. Arpita’s work tends to draw from Asian and Eastern mythology, using it both visually and conceptually to explore issues of cultural displacement in the Asian diaspora.
Within the take-over Arpita will be sharing images from Nalini (2016-) – head to our Instagram page to see her work.
