- Swati Piparsania is a designer and educator whose work incorporates making objects and devising movement. In her studio practice, she builds floors, mattresses, shoes, and pants that inscribe the dynamics for performance as well as its dysfunction. These objects elevate, bend, hide and restrict parts of the body that engage in a monotonous task. In choreographing an unfamiliarity with one’s own body she brings attention to the familiar and learnt movement and gesture.
