Bindi Vora

United Kingdom

Bindi Vora is a contemporary photographic artist. Her practice utilizes various analogue processes, often taking inspiration from her everyday surroundings, which include her personal archive. Vora’s work teases out subtle marks and pigments within the materials she uses, such as negatives and photographic paper; the results often create vast spaces of colour, light and subtle detail that contemplate ideas of perception and representation of the photographic print. She is interested in the way materials or ephemera can be reused or recycled to create new narratives but can be traced back to other works, almost like interconnected tissues. In 2013, Vora graduated from University of Westminster with a BA (Hons) in Photographic Arts. Her works have been exhibited in a number of group exhibitions in the United Kingdom and across the world including The Photographers’ Gallery, Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects, UK; 180 The Strand, UK; Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood, UK; Phoenix Gallery, Exeter; Cultural Centre of Belgrade, Serbia; Benaki Museum, Athens; Art Stage, Singapore; amongst others. Her works have been published in PYLOT, Capricious Magazine and Loose Associations, and has appeared on various websites including I Heart Women, Hyperallergic, A Corner With; being named as one to watch by Art Fetch. In 2014, Vora self-published her first photographic book In the blue light we failed., which has recently been acquired by The Women’s Art Library at Goldsmiths University, Franklin Furnace Artist Book Collection / Museum of Modern Art, New York, Self Publish Be Happy, London amongst others. In 2019, she was commissioned by the Hospital Rooms to produce a work for the Junipers, a NHS Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit in Exeter, Devon. 10% of profits from sales of the series Mountain of Salt will go to Hospital Rooms, an arts and mental health charity that commissions extraordinary artworks for NHS mental health inpatient units across the UK.
