zeropowercut/Piyush Kashyap

zeropowercut/Piyush Kashyap makes art to locate how caste is coded in the real. Their practice-based-research is driven to articulate how the caste-ideological-grading of workers, as various levels of Sudra (‘insignificant, menial and unknowledgeable’) counters reality as unintelligible, by notionally dissociating the bridge of Knowledge and Work. Kashyap runs a research-and-development lab called zeropowercut to create collective productions of Dalit-Bahujan discourse from their small studio in the old city of Patna-Saheb, Bihar.

zeropowercut/Piyush Kashyap has exhibited work at The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art; The New Medium III; and Serendipity Arts Residency 2023, all in India, among others.
