Savyasachi Anju Prabir holds a B.Cr.A in Film and Contemporary Arts from the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bengaluru and an MA in Visual Anthropology from the University of Muenster, Germany. He is keen on using text, sound and image to create multimodal works and bring a reflexive and collaborative methodology to academic and artistic practice.
Savyasachi’s films have won four awards and have been screened at over 30 international film festivals. His image and sound based works have been shown at galleries in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal and India. He is the recipient of the Early Career Fellowship from TISS in 2016, the Generator Cooperative Art Production Fund from Experimenter, Kolkata in 2020, the Inlaks Fine Art Award 2021 and the Goa Open Arts Catalyst Grant 2021-22.
At present, Savyasachi is interested in raising questions on representation, ethics and aesthetics through a postcolonial approach that challenges anthropocentric positions. In his current projects, he has been experimenting with drawings, found images, objects and sound recordings. Drawing inspiration from the circadian rhythms of his environment, he wishes to arrive at new ways of artistic research and production.
