Aminder Virdee is a London based interdisciplinary artist primarily working within Visual Arts and Performance Arts; focusing on the socio-political to forge together complex concepts of intersectionality, autobiography and human rights activism, that are integral to her work and process.

Aminder’s performative works seeks to transform spaces into political sites of radical agency – using awkwardness as her basis to break societal constructs, and forms of censorship, around physical disabilities and mental illness. Aminder contemplates to re-enact and re-construct narratives, stereotypes and imagery that disrupt the reality of the lived experience of disability – and intersectionality – through humour, honesty and hyperbolic anecdotes.
