Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Borrowing from the Japanese technique of Kintsugi of repairing broken pottery with powdered gold, The Mappa Mundi series maps the routine of daily journeys, and embeds the clay from each of the cities that the artist inhabits – Bombay and Singapore. It is overlaid with the paths travelled through time in the mind’s eye and the transient nature of memory as she traces her routes, filling and lining them with fine gold.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Mumbai

Based in: Singapore and India

Madhvi breaks away from the traditional notion of ceramics. Her works expand into the sculptural pushing from a vessel reference to the large scale, affecting and altering the space they occupy. Having lived in three continents and in four countries, she belongs to a world where change is the only constant. Inspired and affected by the challenges of new opportunities and limitations brought by new circumstances, incubation, growth and movement find repeated expression in her works. Organic, earthy and sensual, Madhvi’s work balances between disparate ideas of fragility and strength. Built with coils that cradle and encircle one another, that are supportive and emergent, relaxed yet taut the forms seek to address issues of opposing forces. They contemplate and question the dual nature of existence.

Born in Mumbai India, Madhvi Subrahmanian started her career with Ray Meeker and Deborah Smith at the Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry. Golden Bridge is a production pottery and a clay art center where students from all over India come to learn the craft of clay.

After her training in Pondicherry, Madhvi set up her own studio in Mumbai and later attained her Masters in Fine arts from the Meadows School of the Arts in Dallas Texas .

Madhvi has had several solo and group exhibitions around the world and has also participated in several residency programs. Her residencies include Watershed in Maine USA, Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Japan, FLICAM museum in Fuping China and Naori Eco Art Festival in South Korea. Madhvi has won several grants and awards over the years and has also been selected to participate in several competitions and biennales most recently the ASNA triennial, Karachi Pakistan and Indonesia Contemporary Ceramic Biennale, Jakarta Indonesia.

Madhvi’s work can be found in several public and private collections, such as the Mumbai Airport Authority in India, Jindal Art Foundation, India, Lohia Foundation, Indonesia, Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, Japan and East Coast Park in Singapore.

Her work has been covered in several magazines and books like Contemporary ceramics by Emmanuel Cooper.
