About

Samir Bhowmik, b. 1975, India (FINLAND) is a multi-disciplinary Finnish artist and architect. His current work examines the architectural, infrastructural and energetic entanglements of cultural memory and the environment. Using multi-sensorial methods to investigate infrastructure, he attempts to generate poetic vignettes between the clashing of multiple materialities, networks and bodies. Through performance installations, Samir often creates participatory narratives, and immersive performances that act as probes within which the imaginaries of hidden, contested and lost topographies unfold. Samir graduated as a Doctor of Arts from the Aalto University, Finland, and holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Maryland, United States.
