Rohini Devasher


Rohini Devasher is an artist and amateur astronomer. Her practice, spanning films, drawing and printmaking, maps the antagonism of time and space. It walks the fine line between wonder and the uncanny, foregrounding the ‘strangeness’ of encountering, observing and recording both environment and experience. Her current research focuses on the twin aspects of the Earth’s skies – its celestial constants on one hand and the mutable objects of the atmosphere on the other. In August 2021, Devasher and Pallavi Paul co-founded Splice, an artistic and curatorial collaborative practice.

Between 2021 and 2022 Rohini was Online Artist-in-Residence at the ODI as part of the Evidence and Foresight programme. During her residency she created her major new four-channel film installation One Hundred Thousand Suns.

Devasher’s work has been shown at the Rubin Museum, New York (2021), the Sea Art Festival, Busan (2021), The Edge of Time Kunst Leuven City Festival, the 14th Sharjah Biennial (2019) among others
