Vikram Divecha

Vikram Divecha (b. 1977) is a Mumbai-bred artist based in Dubai, UAE.

Divecha’s practice consists of “found processes” in which he utilizes existing material, space and labour to “manufacture” a form of industrial produce. The result of his engagement with site specific environments are public art, sculptural installations, video and drawings.

He has exhibited at Binary States India-UAE, Kochi (2016), Portrait Sessions, Tashkeel, Dubai (2016); White Cube... Literally, Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde, Dubai (2016); Warehouse Project, Alserkal Commission, (2016); DUST, Centre for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2015); and Accented, Maraya Art Centre, Sharjah (2015).

Divecha is the recipient of the 2014 Middle East Emergent Artist Prize, and has created work for The Arab Fund For Arts and Culture's public art commission InVisible in 2014. In 2017 he will participate in Sharjah Biennial 13, Tamawuj, and will take part in the group exhibition for the National Pavilion of United Arab Emirates, at the 57th Venice Biennale.

He will be one of the five participating artists in the UAE National Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2017 curated by Hammad Nasser, entitled "Rock, Paper, Scissors: Positions in Play".
