Biography

Aakansha Ghosh is a visual artist who works across mediums and forms, using found everyday objects and building materials. Her research attempts to understand the complexity associated with notions of defining, sustaining, encountering, and accepting a place as a geographical identity. Her works further explore the implications of these identities in relation to how a place becomes home. Interested in sites and objects, her work weaves an understanding of place and home that navigate their presence through each other. She earned a BVA Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India (2018) and a MFA from Simon Fraser University, Canada (2021). Originally from India, Ghosh currently lives and works as a guest on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
