Nisha Bhakoo’s work as a poet informs her moving image pieces and collages. She creates new meanings and contexts through re-arrangement of images and generating new rhythms. Her attached poetic statements are often concerned with the uncanny and unconscious – she makes the familiar unfamiliar, and draws on ideas of repression. Her projects often make reference to new technologies and social networks, focusing on their uncanny implications.
Nisha Bhakoo received a MA in Critical and Creative Writing at Sussex University, and has toured internationally as a poet/performance artist. She was shortlisted for Cambridge University’s Jane Martin Award in 2015.
