Maity has participated in Experiments 2016, group show at Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai and Khoj Peers Residency 2014 at Khoj Artists Association in New Delhi. She received the Society of Oriental Art Award in 2010 and Certificate of Merit in the Students’ Annual Exhibition in 2012 and 2013. She was part of Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke’s 2014 edition of ‘Art for Young Collectors’, in Mumbai. Her work was also recognized when she received the Cima Jury Award in 2015.
Her recent projects are based on socio-cultural, geographical, political and environmental issues of Barbil iron ore mines area, one of India’s largest iron ore mines located in the Keonjhar district of Orissa. She interacts with the land and its inhabitants (mostly indigenous tribes of Orissa and Jharkhand) to understand the region’s ecology and politics. During her last visit, she investigated the impact of displacement on the different tribal communities since the establishment of the mines. Occupational migration has forced the locals to abandon their traditional way of life and practices. Traditions have been altered by their new circumstances, adapting to other cultures to sustain their livelihood. Their new lifestyle doesn’t permit them to wear their traditional dress and ornaments. This body of work investigates the relationship between tradition and situation and their contradictions, in the lives of indigenous communities in Orissa.
