Dr Jaimini Patel

Jaimini Patel is an artist based in London whose work explores the agency of matter through a negotiation of boundaries, systems, and performative actions.  Slight interventions are made to materials and spaces to reveal their ability to hold memories or associations and examine how these can be transformed, shifted, or even removed. Increasingly working with remnants from her daily existence Patel invites the contemplation of time through the intricate interdependence of things, both animate and inanimate.
