Tejal Shah AS IT IS opening

  • Mimosa House 12 Princes Street London, England, W1B 2LL United Kingdom (map)

Tejal Shah will present a selection of new works on paper alongside their 5- channel video installation Between the Waves (2012). Informed by queer, feminist and Buddhist thought, Shah explores the interdependence of all life and the importance of care in times of ethical and ecological precarity.

Daria Khan founded Mimosa House with the curatorial vision to support artistic experimentation and collaboration. Within this framework, Tejal Shah has invited fellow artists Anne Nora Fischer and Mo Maja Moesgaard; together they will present an on-site collaboration lasting ten days.

The artists will be present serving you live. 

Tejal Shah (b.1979, Bhilai, India, lives in New Delhi) studied at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia, and at the Art Institute of Chicago, United States. Her works have been shown widely in museums, galleries, and film festivals including the Kunstmuseum, Wolfsburg (2018), Kunsthaus Hamburg (2017), the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2017), the Office for Contemporary Art, Oslo (2016-17), Whitechapel Gallery, London (2014), dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel (2012), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2011), the Serpentine Gallery, London (2009) and Tate Modern, London (2006), among others.

Anne Nora Fischer (b.1988, Copenhagen, Denmark) holds a MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and has studied “Dance and Choreography” at The Danish National School of Performing Arts and “Art and Social Practice” at Portland State University. Fischer works in a field between choreography and visual art with large-scale performances performed with professional dancers, artists, friends, lovers and the audience themselves.

Mo Maja Moesgaard (b.1980, Varde, Denmark) is an artist and queer feminist activist whose practice is driven by political questions and frustrations, as well as an enthusiasm for drawing and animation. Throughout their practice, Mo has a strong desire to work across differences and wishes to form alliances and create meaningful co-productions. Drawing and animation's position within popular culture and political activism is essential for Mo, who sees their work as equally linked to DIY/DIT political cultures and stories, as to the art institution.
