PERMI JHOOTI | DIGITAL ARTIST
Throughout my sporting life, all people asked –
What’s it like to be a woman, what’s it like to be Indian?
Meaningless questions when all I cared for was what it felt to play football.
In my work, I strip gender, age, race from my subjects.
I capture what remains when one dances, plays, moves, just is.
And from this I create my art.
And no-one ever asks if the dancer, the fighter, whomever in my print, was a woman, or Indian, or anything really.
Because that was never the point.
