Astha Butail

Astha Butail (b. 1977 in Amritsar, India) pursues an approach that is shaped by examining traditions of sharing and passing on knowledge. Her work is about myths and philosophies from different cultures, about their history and how they are nurtured up to the present day. Butail’s research provides the basis for her art, translating it into a remarkably broad spectrum of different media – into drawings, assemblages, object art, performance and interactive installations.
