Shilpa Gupta (b. 1976) is a visual artist who lives in Mumbai (India). Gupta's main interests lie in the perception of boundaries and the fragile construction of the self: boundaries within public dimensions and everyday life. Gupta's main interests lie in the fragile construction of the self and in the perception of boundaries, boundaries within public dimensions or in everyday life. She reminds us how definitions and labels - whether of people (gender, religion), of space (the nation state) or of objects (art as opposed to crafts) - all form part of repressive power apparatuses. Gupta trespasses on classifications and the sense of the security they provide by using a variety of means including 'found objects', interactive videos and the performance. Her work has been exhibited in numerous public institutions including the Tate Modern, the Serpentine Gallery and the New Museum. Her works also form part of permanent collections including those of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Centre Pompidou.
