Neeraja D stages installations which perform a narrative structure. Primarily a printmaker, her sculpture and video is informed by silence and noise, and elusive marks and permanent impressions punctuate her compositions. The multiple distinctions and schism between dialect and language have been central to her work. The apparent associations and involuntary disassociations of the spoken word and the very formal structure of a written script enable her to renegotiate the dominant narrative.

Born and raised in Hyderabad, India, Neeraja D holds an MFA from Cornell University, New York, where she received the Charles Baskerville Painting Award. She is currently based in Bangalore, where she teaches at the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology. She was recently Artist-in-Residence at the Mahler-Lewitt Studios, Spoleto, Italy, as a recipient of the 2017 Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation award.
