Devika Bilimoria is a multi-disciplinary artist and photographer. Their practice expands on notions of queering, materiality, and time to disrupt and examine the construction of gestures, bodies and cultural experiences, with an emphasis on diasporic South-Asian dance and ritual. Having trained in the Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam, as well as Fine Arts and Media Studies at RMIT, their art forms span performance, moving/still image and installation—harnessing participatory processes, improvisation, experimentation and embodied listening to explore sensations of time. They have shown work at the National Portrait Gallery, the Monash Gallery of Art, Montsalvat Gallery and Dancehouse.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
