Surveyor and the Surveyed




34.0 x 34.0 x 32.0 in. / 86.4 x 86.4 x 81.3 cm.


Acrylic on wood

This work was a result of Navjot’s excursions into the forested heartlands of India where she set up DIAA (Dialogue Interactive Artists Association) with three other artists, alongside a Shilpi Gram in Bastar’s Kondagaon in Chhattisgarh. The sculpture examines the representation of the female body from the point of view of women who have been instructed, since childhood, to survey their bodies as a response to being constantly surveyed by others. The artist, however, fiercely examines a woman’s place in the overall gender politics through this work.
