100 word Artist Statement: Meera Sethi is a Canadian visual artist whose practice encompasses a range of mediums to pose questions about the relationship between migration, diaspora, hybridity and belonging. Her work foregrounds contemporary histories on the edges of representation, especially queer, diasporic and post-colonial moments. Fashion and the politics of dress is a persistent theme. Recent work includes: “Begum”, mixed media paintings that explore the notion of "excess" in queer femme fashion; “Upping the Aunty”, paintings on canvas that place the figure of the “Aunty” at the centre of fashion; and “Unstitched”, a single sari that travels around the world.
