Dayanita Singh - Mona, Mother, Mohun and the Fileroom - 2016
On 17th June 2016 an iconic new building opened on the south side of Tate Modern. In support and celebration of this occasion we invited a diverse and international group of artists to create limited edition artworks. The limited edition, Mona, Mother, Mohun and the FILEROOM, 2016 was generously donated by Dayanita Singh in support of the new Tate Modern.
Dayanita Singh’s art uses photography to reflect and expand on the ways in which we relate to photographic images. Her recent works, drawn from her extensive photographic oeuvre, are a series of mobile museums that allow her images to be endlessly edited, sequenced, archived and displayed. Stemming from Singh’s interest in the archive, the museums present her photographs as interconnected bodies of work that are replete with both poetic and narrative possibilities. Publishing is also a significant part of the artist’s practice: in her books, often published without text, Singh extends her experiments on alternate forms of producing and viewing photographs.
