Nirali Desai (SG, USA, CZ) identifies as a performance artist. The majority of her work is not a performance. However, identifying as a woman of color, her life has sustained a consistent performance. Her practice which investigates the public and private spheres of womanhood intersecting with issues of mental health, interpersonal abuse and justice, can never escape the questions of self. As all her work considers womanhood, and womanhood is an intricate and precise performance; she is a performance artist. Prior medium and spaces she has enjoyed working in: clown in Menorca, installation in Singapore, dance in the Prague, performance in Vermont, yoga in Tenerife, and prayer in Gujarat. She is looking forward to learning more about her body's instincts towards ritual.
