How far? How long? is a quasi scientific video calculation and abstraction of distance. Taking units of measurement, a camera and a clock as points of departure, the work proposes the collapse of physical space into numeric values and interrogates fictional distances and durations between arbitrary positions to produce measurements and tensions caused by a confrontation of the empirical, poetic and theoretical.
Tsohil Bhatia, is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Pittsburgh, PA. With a practice that fluctuates between making objects, performance documents, video, photographs, and drawings often confused together, they’re interested in ontology, metaphysics and language. Coming from a performance practice, they’re attentive to time and work towards the incorporation of its passage in their work. They received their MFA from the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University and were awarded the Regina and Martin Miller Fellowship. Having lived between India and the USA they have shown their work at autonomous as well as eminent institutions as well as University of British Columbia, One-off Moving Image Festival, Bezalel Academy, Melbourne and recently at the Andy Warhol Museum.
