Announcing the 2023 ECR: Devika Bilimoria

Based in Naarm, Devika is a multi-disciplinary artist working across performance, video, photography, and installation. Trained in the South Indian dance from Bharatanatyam, as well as Media Studies at RMIT and Fine Arts (honours) from the VCA, they utilise chance, participation, and practices of listening to reveal socio-cultural formations of separateness, hierarchies, and gesture. 

Their Experimental Research Residency will explore randomisation as a key choreographic agent to disorient, jumble, and reveal embodied hierarchies and social prescriptions of dominant worshipping patterns archived within the artists bodies—to reimagine what is given.
