Harsha Durugadda

A conceptual artist, Harsha Durugadda lives and works in Hyderabad. He is the winner of the Rio Tinto Sculpture Award 2017 at Sculpture by the Sea, Australia. He received an MA in visual communication from New Delhi from Jawaharlal Nehru University. Durugadda uses sculpture, interactive work, and site-specific installations to bring to light the intricate understandings of the modern world. His work exposes the invisible elements of the larger fabric of life to tactical experiences, oftentimes bridging the distance between real and utopian. Durugadda’s sculptures and installations have been exhibited internationally at group exhibitions in Germany, Australia, United States, and London. In 2014he was invited by the Courtauld Institute of Art to present on Ancient BuddhistSculpture at the British Museum, London.
