Veda Thozhur Kolleri (b. 1990 Chennai, India) is an artist working with organic found material, video, photography and drawing. She is interested in the ephemerality of organic material, and how this evidences the passage or accumulation of time. She creates immersive spaces that alternatingly embrace and resist this ephemerality, where the organic material she uses is often framed by glass vitrines held in iron stands. 

 

Her work stems from having lived in suburbs in India, whose developmental ambitions make severe ecological compromises, while her practice is driven by her close relationship to animals, and the landscapes that they lead her to.
