Both teams cannot win: Natasha Bissonauth interviews Divya Mehra

by Natasha Bissonauth

C Magazine, Winter 2010, no. 108, pp. 22-25

Divya Mehra's video practice uses the methodology of humour to expose the misconceptions of difference, as reflected by her works The Yogi and The Taxi Driver, which use humourous displays of self mockery to arouse questions of culturall differences. Her artwork is intended to reveal the superficiality surrounding the stereotypes surrounding race, power and priviledge.
