hansika jethnani is a poet, visual artist and queer body positive femme based in mumbai. she has previously lived in jakarta, shanghai and london. her work explores a variety of themes including sexuality, trauma, healing, mental health, body positivity, and migration. she is interested in decolonisation and the dismantling of oppressive structures institutionalised within wider society.
her visual art practice involves exploring the metaphysical notions of our realities. she is interested in what one cannot necessarily always see but exists and impacts our existence significantly, the idea of energy and that it exists in everything around us, and that the elements carry the energy of the universe. she is fond of experimenting with the form and materiality of the elements. a lot of her work is about letting go; letting the elements take over and letting what is meant to be created, create itself. she sees herself as merely a mediator between the artwork and the elements.
she completed her ba (hons) photography degree at london college of communication - university of the arts london in 2016.
