Conceptual Artist

Hetain Patel is a conceptual artist who began examining how identity is constructed, cultivated and performed through his photography. The natural evolution of Patel's work lead him to experiment with different artistic forms, including video and live performance. Patel's latest show, 'Be Like Water,' is a self-meditating piece that utilizes dance and live performance art to examine how imitation can be a path towards self-discovery.

Having emigrated from India to the UK in the 60s, Patel is interested in the ways modes of culture and language intersect in our inevitable identity formation. Patel's impressive body of conceptual artwork intrigues viewers to look beyond "surface" identities that are gleaned by gender, class and ethnicity.
