series were mainly made with wool and porcelain. It began with an interest to
traverse, transform and explore, sometimes based on spontaneous reaction, other
times a necessity for an expression.
twofold, my work has always been about materiality while exploring the concept
of home and belongingness.
Porcelain was one
of the primary material that I work with.
The material allows me to explore meanings of fragility and perpetuity.
The property of Porcelain, with its sacred whiteness, vulnerable to break, yet
the material would not decay through ages.
Wool was another
material that I have a strong affinity towards. The tightly interwoven
entanglement of wool fibers embodied meanings of warmth, softness, comfort and
divert from the other two series. It revisit amalgamation of the materials to
take shape in ubiquitous tools such as hammer, scissors, keys, etc. The tools
are represented with roots and plants like forms growing out of them or with
some parts altered and replaced.
The domestic items
express the thoughts of home, while the roots and plants like forms growing
from it explore the idea of belongingness.
The work tries to
discover deeper meanings of belongingness in home through domestic items beyond
the materials and forms.
