Big Walls and Windows Prizesponsored by Cass Art and Liquitex
July -September 2021
For the 2021 Big Walls & Windows Project at Central Saint Martins, Bajaj brings together silhouette motifs of the people seen around the CSM building and surrounding areas, symbolising different identities and styles of the students, staff and members of the public that circulate.
Using spiders alongside these silhouettes, inspired work such as Louise Bourgeois’ Maman and Kathy Acker’s pseudonym of The Black Tarantula, Bajaj explores the comforting passive matriarchy of the spider in the history of feminist artworks. With 2020 denying communal rites of passages, graduating, and turning a year older from her bedroom, Bajaj explores the possibility of sharing individual experiences and connecting through our own myths, creating narratives that mobilise and form emotional bonds.
