About Inderjeet Sandhu
With his cross-disciplinary practice, designer and artist Inderjeet Sandhu exposes the hidden narratives of constructing his identity, a sense of home and its physical contents between cultures and beyond established realities. Through his bi-cultural upbringing in an Indian household in The Netherlands, he experiences first-hand how cultures and ideologies often contradict each other and exclude him from being fully accepted. His series are often inspired by objects that represent and embody very specific contexts and ideologies. By confusing, mixing, subverting and denying preconceived notions of the object’s usage, history and connotation, he deprives them from their familiar understanding and makes them into displaced bodies. His body of work challenges existing perceptions and convictions and explores alternate metaphorical homes that are porous and receptive to continuous renegotiation.
