Rohini Devasher was born in 1978 and lives and works in Delhi. She received her MA in printmaking from Winchester School of Art in the UK and her BFA from the College of Art in Delhi. Her work has been exhibited widely in India and abroad. Two years ago, she began a project that looked at unraveling the hidden world of amateur astronomers in Delhi. Beginning as a form of collective investigation with ‘astro-nomads’ or amateur astronomers in Delhi, stories, conversations and histories came together in a slowly building chronicle of the almost obsessive group of people whose lives have been transformed by the night sky. Titled Deep Time, her exhibition will be held at Khoj Studios during October 4-13 and then, will travel to Project 88 gallery in Mumbai.
