Bikalpa Art Center introduces and welcomes its intern Sanskriti Shrestha from Kathmandu, Nepal. Sanskriti is a high-school graduate currently working as a founder and manager of her own handmade jewelry making startup. As a mixed media artist, she specializes in found object art mediums/ up-cycled art decorations, and jewelry pieces although her interests vary across various interdisciplinary fields of art including literature, performance art/poetry, and theatres.
“Working at Bikalpa Art Centre helps me contextualize the contemporary art scene of my home country and its significance in the global art world while still being governed by my own art practice. The experiences I develop here deepen my level of understanding of how practicing arts and humanities interplay with each other while intellectualizing art matters. These experiences are going to be extremely relevant to the degree I’m going to later pursue for my Bachelors”, says Sanskriti, who is going to study Liberal Arts at Bard College Berlin in Germany. We wish her all the best for her internship at BAC and for all her future endeavors.
