Nayan Kulkarni is interested in the forms of cinematic imagining that play out in the contemporary city. For over a decade he has made light, sound, video and performance based art works in galleries and the public realm. He is currently completing The Golden Hour with Hull City Council. Recent works include: Blade as part of Look Up, Hull City of Culture 2017; The Three Graces, Illuminate York 2015; Hryre, Chester 2012; and Mirrie Dancers, Shetland 2009/10. He has been an artist on design teams in award winning regeneration, transport and landscape scale projects including: Hull Public Realm Strategy, Cabot Circus Bristol, St Davids Cardiff and The Ashford Ring Road. His broad experience of working within complex design team and project delivery contexts has created a platform from which to articulate unique ways of using the potential of art and light in non gallery contexts. Currently a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art, his research is focussed on understanding the complex formations of experience and meaning that are possible with artificial light and place.
