I acknowledge the traditional custodians of where I now breathe and grow. I pay my respects to the peoples of the Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung language groups of the Kulin Nations - elders past, present and emerging. The sovereignty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has never been ceded.
Devika Bilimoria is a X-disciplinary artist and photographer. Their practice expands on notions of queering, materiality, and time to disrupt and examine the construction of gestures, bodies and cultural experiences, with an emphasis on diasporic South-Asian dance and ritual. Having trained in the Indian dance form of Bharatanatyam, as well as Fine Arts and Media Studies at RMIT, their art-forms span performance, moving/still image and installation in live and digital contexts. Oriented towards the cosmic and geologic, they harness participatory processes, improvisation, experimentation and listening to explore sensations of time and interconnectedness with more-than-human bodies. Devika has shown work at the National Portrait Gallery, the Monash Gallery of Art, Montsalvat Gallery and Dancehouse.
They are a freelance photographer and videographer, co-founder of ecological collective L&NDLESS, one half of queer-time lab GEOFADE alongside Luna Mrozik Gawler, and, is a Next Wave 2021 Kickstart recipient with Amias Hanley. In 2022 they were a part of PHOTO2022 exhibiting work in A Bell Rings Over The Valley, curated by Shivanjali Lal, at Footscray Community Arts. Devika is currently undertaking Fine Arts (Honours) in Visual Arts at the Victoria College of Arts.
