Projects 108: Gauri Gill By Nicole Miller

Nicole Miller, The Brooklyn Rail, June 3, 2018

“We were living within nature, which, chameleon-like, had so many faces—changing even as one took a turn.”

—Gauri Gill


[...] the vivid photographs of Gauri Gill are animated by the self-determination of their subjects. In her new series “Acts of Appearance” (2015 – ongoing), these figures address the viewer in various guises—animal, human, or thing—the uncanny gaze of their masks both inscrutable and frank.
