Vidya-Kelie Juganaikloo is a French-Mauritian transmedia artist, born in France, living and working in Paris.
Vidya-Kelie proposes a series of traces and exchanges around sensitive phenomena as tools of communication.
Her work explores concepts such as trust, law, beliefs, time, love, data, space, knowledge, memories, magnetism, passions (…) through conceptual works that unfold as intimate connections between the artist, the work and the viewer.
Transmedia artist, Vidya-Kelie is a graduate of the Beaux-Arts in Angers. She develops her art/science practice around communication. Her productions, often interactive, are vehicles for poetising the complex relationships that humans have with their bodies and their environment.
She is an artistic advisor to HARDDISKMUSEUM, a member of the contemporary art collectives “Kind of Kin” and the Biennale of the Tangible Image 2023 (BIT20.paris).
Exhibiting internationally, this year she is nominated by ORLAN for the OPLINE-PRIZE INTERNATIONAL prize, of which she is the winner of the “Prix du Public 2022/2023”.
Through sometimes interactive, sometimes contemplative experiences, the artist evokes the power of bodies, their interconnections, their capacities to transmit and receive in a biological, social or physical dimension.
By confusing the scales of time or space, she continues her work in which she puts in parallel what exceeds us and what we try to control.
The artist also questions the place we give to the « Process » before the « Objective ». Borrowing keys from applied philosophy, ecofeminism or linguistics, she is committed to its valorization and transmission.
