Rudra Sharma (Jalandhar, India) is an artist who mainly works with performance. By using an ever-growing archive of found documents to create autonomous artworks, Sharma reflects on the closely related subjects of archive and memory. This often results in an examination of both the human need for ‘conclusive’ stories and the question whether anecdotes ‘fictionalise’ history. His performances are an investigation of concepts such as authenticity and objectivity by using an encyclopaedic approach and quasi-scientific precision and by referencing documentaries, ‘fact-fiction’ and popular scientific equivalents.
