Preetika Rajgariah: Wild, Wild Country
In Preetika Rajgariah’s exhibition Wild, Wild Country, culture, capitalism, and classism collide on the yoga mat. Through sculpture, video, and performance, Rajgariah explores how this spiritual practice with deep roots in Hinduism has proliferated into nearly every subculture of American society. Fascinated by yoga’s popularity but also its dramatic transformation, Rajgariah calls attention to yoga’s long history, its profound spiritual origin, and the nuanced line between appropriation and appreciation.
