Radha May is an artist whose work explores forgotten and hidden histories, peripheral sites, and feminine myths. Her projects begin with an investigation of things she does not understand but wants to bring closer to her. She uses tools borrowed from anthropologists, historians and journalists to conduct her research. She works in the field, meticulously sifting through historical and social archives making what she finds available to anybody; she also distills the material into fictional and surreal scenarios that complicate assumptions about history, borders and cultural and social formations.

Radha May is Elisa Giardina-Papa, Nupur Mathur and Bathsheba Okwenje. She comes from Sicily, New Delhi, and Kampala.
