Mimesis has been generously created and donated by Bharti Kher in support of her exhibition Alchemies, which opens at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in June 2024.

It will be Kher’s most extensive UK museum presentation to date and is highly ambitious in size and scope. The exhibition centres the female body and explores transformative potential in a display that brings together intimate works in light-filled gallery spaces with monumental sculpture in the landscape. Alchemies will ignite the imagination and bring Kher’s work to a new and diverse audience, shaping meaningful and inspirational encounters.

The acquisition of Mimesis is via donation to YSP, so the gift is zero rated for tax. All proceeds support YSP’s charitable mission to encourage access to outstanding art and creative learning for everyone.

Mimesis is a small limited edition of bindis on paper with a mix of lithograph and silkscreen techniques. The bindis are applied by hand on the paper.

This limited edition revisits Bharti Kher's famous series of bindis paintings, a captivating exploration of identity, femininity, and culture. By using thousands of bindis, small colored dots traditionally worn on the forehead in India, Kher creates vibrant and evocative artworks. Each bindi, with its own history and significance, becomes an essential element in the construction of her pieces. Through this series, the artist questions notions of diversity, connection, and transformation.
