Vinit is an Architect / Artist based in Frankfurt-Mumbai. He received his MA from Städelschule, prior to which he has worked as a Project Architect, Teaching and Research Assistant, Artist and an Assistant Curator in Mumbai. He received diplomas in Art, Theory, Criticism (Jnanapravaha, Mumbai), and Film Appreciation Studies (FTII, Pune) and B.ARCH from Mumbai University.

Vinit’s practice oscillates between artistic impulses engaging with ontological questions exploring form, space, time, architecture, image, figure, ground, etc and philosophical / poetic aspirations of investigating epistemological lenses that define varied modes of subjectivity, being, identity, perspectives and movement.

Assuming a multi-disciplinary position that mediates through varied analog (text, painting, drawing, sculpture, installation) as well as digital (immersive VR worldbuilding, AR/XR applications, photogrammetry, computational / generative art) mediums and formats, his work seeks to construct apparatuses and narratives that examine closely and expose the structures / mechanisms of perception, cognition, consciousness, identification, language, translation, desire, embodiment, corporeality and other such ‘reality-constitutive components’ of a particular Subject(s)’ mode of Being or Navigation, in time and space. Oriented towards exploring new techniques, methods and modalities of representation, he is interested in an engagement with seemingly dialectical categories such as digital-analogue, representation-real, shape-form, image-drawing, machine-human, body-mind, object-subject, etc. He values/fancies working through antagonisms, occupying the gaps between seemingly paradoxical positions, and radically subverting them if required. All gestures in his practice are principally driven by political motivations to chart and speculate deterministic and transgressive procedures / potentialities, towards radical emancipation, inclusivity, and solidarity.
