Sapna Chandu

Sapna Chandu is a multidisciplinary artist working with cross-cultural narratives that relate to colonialism, feminism, power and social rituals. She creates stories that feature alternate realities and fictional characters that blur the lines between fiction and reality to challenge established power structures, cultural norms, and notions of authenticity. Sapna does this by blending photography, video, sound, performance and installation to create immersive and participatory experiences.
