For this series, Shivangi interviewed acid attack survivors throughout the world and responded to their stories by using acid to etch their portraits into zinc plates. Her aim is to “raise awareness of the domestic abuse and violence that these women faced [by] using acid as an agent of creation instead of using [it] as a destructive tool.”
In its third edition, the Young Subcontinent project “attempt[s] to to chart the contours and sightlines of South Asian art imagination and art practice.” Read more about the festival here.
