Bindi Vora is a contemporary photographic artist. Her practice utilizes various analogue processes, often taking inspiration from her everyday surroundings, which include her personal archive. Vora’s work teases out subtle marks and pigments within the materials she uses, such as negatives and photographic paper; the results often create vast spaces of colour, light and subtle detail that contemplate ideas of perception and representation of the photographic print. She is interested in the way materials or ephemera can be reused or recycled to create new narratives but can be traced back to other works, almost like interconnected tissues.
In 2013, Vora graduated from University of Westminster with a BA (Hons) in Photographic Arts. Her works have been exhibited in a number of group exhibitions including The Photographers’ Gallery, UK; Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects, UK; 180 The Strand, UK; Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood, UK; Phoenix Gallery, Exeter; Cultural Centre of Belgrade, Serbia; Benaki Museum, Athens and Art Stage, Singapore.
Her works have been published in PYLOT, Capricious Magazine and Loose Associations, and has appeared on various websites including I Heart Women, Hyperallergic, A Corner With; being named as one to watch by Art Fetch. In 2020 her ongoing series Mountain of Salt was exhibited as part of the Singapore International Photography Festival.
Vora self-published an artist book In the blue light we failed which has been acquired by The Women’s Art Library at Goldsmith’s University (UK); Franklin Furnace Artist Book Collection/Museum of Modern Art (US) and Self- Publish Be Happy at Maison Européenne de la Photographie (FR).
In 2019, she was commissioned by the Hospital Rooms on behalf of the NHS Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit in Exeter. Her works are held in public and private collections across Europe.
