Drawing inspiration from cinema, photographic archives, and mass media, Yamini Nayar
creates imagined interiors from found and discarded materials, and photographs them
before destroying the tableaux. The environments that Nayar constructs, which loosely
reference both specific landmarks, such as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Johnson Wax Building,
and generic spaces, like a midcentury living room, are absent of people and appear
psychologically loaded, often with distorted perspectives that may disorient viewers.
