Aqui Thami is a Darjeeling-based contemporary indigenous artist whose work focuses on empowering marginalised communities and ‘making art to reclaim’. An entirely self-taught artist, she built resilience and reached out to others through her multidisciplinary art practice, which encompasses poster-making, performance, zine creation and photography. During her residency she is exploring political activists whose work is preserved in the V&A’s national collection of posters.
