24 On Now

Sheila is an artist of Indian/English mixed heritage, whose solo and collaborative performances, social art works, installations, texts and videos seek to illuminate and make visible the connections between race, ecology, science, history and the present day.

Since 1995 her attentive, detailed and care ‘full’ practice has been cross-pollinating ideas, materials, people and places in order to un-settle dominant narratives and make space for those that are (or that which is) in-between, on the edge, in the middle, at the border.

Most recently she has been sharing her performance Common Salt - a collaboration with artist Sue Palmer - in museums, libraries and art spaces around the UK, and working on An Invitation To… with two groups of residents in Bretton for Peterborough Presents.
