Although film and audio works have both appeared in Ajit Chauhanï¿½s shows, the foundation of the American artistï¿½s practice is paper. In 2008 he made an untitled series of tear-shaped, wigwam-like structures from papier mï¿½chï¿½.
The San Francisco Arts Commission is thrilled to present a newly commissioned site-specific installation by San Francisco-based artist Ajit Chauhan, in the 155 Grove Street window installation space. Drawing inspiration from artists like Robert Gober and Maurizio Cattelan, Chauhan uses his work to both dismantle and remake the worlds in which he navigates.
This series of drawings by Ajit Chauhan are based on his experiences riding different bicycle rickshaws in India. Chauhan describes riding the rickshaws, decorated in folk paintings, as if he were perched on the back of a pregnant, electric animal.
