Shivangi Ladha, Noida, India
Artist Residency at IPCNY

Before arriving in New York in March, Shivangi interviewed and photographed victims of acid attacks in India. She responds to their stories by using acid to etch their portraits into zinc plates. In the resulting series, acid is an agent of creation as well as destruction. With these prints, she aims to raise awareness of this particular form of violence.

The New Prints artist residency is divided between IPCNY's small workshop press and our partner EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.
