Grounded in her personal and familial experience of migration and transience – going back to the Partition of India - Ganguly finds inspiration for her work in mythology, religion, culture, politics, and nature. To challenge and investigate these powerful influences - particularly as they relate to intimate relationships and normative hierarchies - the artist digs deep into perceptual reality through a pointed use of materials, abstraction, figuration, and text.
