Devika Bilimoria (b.1985, Ba Fiji) is an interdisciplinary artist who dissects migrated rituals, dance and gesture to conjure contemporary experiences of hybridity. She utilises material such as paint, digital data, and her body to engage interconnectivity and intention. Through site-responsive movement, repetition and digital technology Devika explores the ontological inside/outside conundrum with her body.

Her education spans from both a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies and Fine Arts (Photography) at RMIT, to Bharata Natyam and Odissi training at the Chandrabhanu Bharatalaya Academy of Indian Dance in Melbourne since 1995. 

Devika has been a finalist for the Bowness Photography Prize 2015 and 2018, the Nillumbik Prize for her video pieces in 2016 and 2018, and the Macquarie Digital Portrait Award, screening her video piece An Arctic Time Signature at the National Portrait Gallery in ACT, 2015. 

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of Narram - where I breathe and grow. I pay my respects to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, to elders past, present and emerging. The sovereignty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has never been ceded.
