Dev Dhunsi (b. 1996) lives and studies in Stockholm. Dhunsi completed his BFA at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 2022 and is now a Master’s candidate at The Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm. Dhunsi published his first photobook, RAKAVAN (2019), with Forlaget Fotografi and is working on a new book to be published with Heavy books.
Dhunsi’s work centers around subjects of identity, origin, and the encounter between cultures based on his experiences from his diasporic childhood sentiments in Norway and journeys to India. He works with photography, video, sound, and collages in his practice, creating mixed media works full of textures and layers. He investigates how the rhythm and movement of machinery and other apparatuses affect everyday life. He also explores such rhythms by echoing sounds, information, and memory, combined with a wish to liberate and refresh his artistic practice around camera work and its preconditioned layered functions.
