Photo and video performance artist Pushpamala N. plays the subject in images that critique female stereotypes in India and the reductive classifications furthered by ethnographic documentation. Pushpamala reenacts historical representations of women in order to subvert them. Her work, which has been compared to Cindy Sherman’s, also references Bollywood archetypes and narratives.
