Mrityunjay Awasthy

Mississauga
Born in Punjab, India, Mrityunjay began rather steadily as a science major pursuing his interest in studio animation and 3D modelling working with multiple studios in India. Past two decades, he has engaged with spaces both within and at the intersections of text, sound and image, continually (dis)locating himself with twin planks of crisis and anxiety. To live in these times is to be anxious; unwitnessed and alone. However, this space is equally a space offering an invite, a provocation for engagement; a space of uncompromised and unbridled desire, beauty, danger and love for THAT which quite escapes articulation. These are the ghosts of the histories, cultures and geographies come undone, these are the ghosts of NOW, of US and these are not going away anytime soon or later; the ones one lives with or rather has to.
