Narrative and the re-use of found material have been central to Chettur’s practice and through a number of projects she has created adaptations of literary classics by using the techniques of conceptual writing. Like everyone Chettur has a kind of internal inventory of narratives, and for her these originate from a collection of realist novels from other eras, stories which still seem particularly relevant today. These classic works of literature have been adapted, and rendered through printmaking, publishing and occasionally performance. Chettur continues to experiment with how systems might be developed and applied to existing narratives as a way of visualising how a text works through the reader.
