Born in New Delhi, where she remained until moving to the United States at the age of eleven, Kaveri Raina’s work revolves around the often-conflicting aspects of hybrid identity. Raina examines the strangeness of the physical body displaced, hovering, uncomfortable, and always anxiously awkward. She navigates binaries searching for in-betweeness, trying to both fulfill and disrupt expectations at once.
