Sheba Chhachhi is an installation artist, photographer, activist, and writer based in New Delhi. Chhachhi began her career with documentary photography in 1980, building up a body of work on the women’s movement in India. A decade later, questions about the politics of representation led her to experiment with alternative photographic practices, and she created a series of constructed portraits in collaboration with women activists. Chhachhi began to work with multimedia installations in 1993, using photographs, text, sculpture, and found objects to investigate and articulate the history, experience, and power of feminine consciousness. She was hosted by the Women’s Studies Department during February, 2005.
