Considering Art Podcast – Suchitra Mattai, multi-disciplinary artist

In this episode, Indo-Caribbean artist Suchitra Mattai talks about how her family history of indentured labour informs her art, how textiles are her main focus including saris that hold a symbolic significance, how her work gives a voice to those who have traditionally been silenced including labourers, migrants and those with mental illness, and how her personal experiences are reflected throughout.
