Anousha Payne

Anousha Payne (b. 1991) lives and works in London. Her work explores the boundaries between personal experience, fiction and myth. Informed by Indian folkloric stories, it plays on ideas of the performative powers of objects and chance; the combination of moral dilemmas and magic, spirituality and animism alongside characters with transformative qualities. Often deploying reptile skin, her ceramics are intended as hybrid objects, a reminder of the fluidity and shared qualities between humans, animals, the natural world and inanimate objects; questioning material hierarchies and values.

Anousha Payne graduated from Camberwell College of arts with a BA in Sculpture in 2014. Recent exhibitions include Tangled Toes, Twisted Ears at Public Gallery (London, 2022); An Ode to Orlando, curated by Marcelle Joseph at Pi Arts (London, 2022); As She Laughs at Cooke Latham with Anna Perach (London, 2021); Hawala at Paradise Row Projects (London, 2021), and Beyond Skin at Tube Culture Hall (Milan, 2021). Upcoming and current shows include grow show It is Better to be Cats than be Loved at Tabula Rasa Gallery (2022), a solo exhibition at Stellarhighway in New York (2022) and group shows at Alkinois, Athens, and Andrea Festa in Rome (2022).
