Mansi Shouche

Fine Art - BA (Hons)

I am a multimedia artist, based in Cambridge UK, having moved here from Mumbai, India in my late twenties.
My art practice is defined by the continuous philosophical and spiritual enquiries that take place in my personal life.  Using nature as a central point I explore topics of particular interest to me such as identity, culture, ecology, science, memory and connections. I believe in extending this inquiry to include the human, the ‘more- than- human', the animate and the inanimate. My endeavour is for my practice to have definitive tangible outcomes. At the moment I am exploring the concept of the social sculpture as a way to explore new ways of thinking and being in the world.

What does it mean to be ‘rooted in the land’,

What does it mean to belong,

A memory is what connects our past present and future, giving us a sense of belonging. I use evocative memories associated with nature and a conversation involving an exchange of these memories as a gift to each other to rekindle associations with nature, place and time.
