Dayanita Singh – ‘I Use Photography to Transform Space’ | TateShots

Photographer Dayanita Singh explains how her photography books are like sculptures, and tells us how the overpowering colour of India led to her work in black and white, which she felt made images ‘more elusive’.

The artist also talks about her frustrations with how images become ‘fossilized’ in museums and art galleries, and how this prompted to develop her mobile ‘pocket museums’ – structures that allow Dayanita herself, or invited participants, to move and change displays of her work.
