Trisha Baga is known for her performance and video installations, but draws upon the legacies of sculpture, painting, music, photography, and literature in her practice. The subjects and themes she explores include contemporary events, hero and celebrity worship, and collective history. Baga’s installations often include a film comprised of montaged and collaged found footage and photographs, layered in such a way that some images obscure others; the films are projected directly onto a wall, over personal items and detritus from her studio—like toiletries, electronics, and boxes—such that they cast shadows onto the projection. Baga explains that these seemingly random objects participate in the installation because they had informed the making of the work.
