Shilpa Gupta is an interdisciplinary artist who uses sound, video, photography and performance to capture and explore themes such as desire, religion and security issues (nations, borders, militarism and identity).

Although Gupta’s works are developed largely through technological means, their significance lies in their candid communication the various issues that shape contemporary life, particularly the lives of young adults. In her works, Gupta touches on aspects of current, universal issues including environmental degradation, globalization, terrorism, war, intolerance, gender politics and human rights.
