Surekha has been exploring the possibilities of the video form, negotiating the public and private spaces. She uses photography and video to archive, document and perform. The current video installation“Un-Claimed & other Urban F(r)ictions” highlights the unusual pre-occupations of people who assign a specific personality to the city.

The videos are shown with an installation of E-resource , along with the idea of recycling, leading to the possible sanity of the city and the notion of the urban.
