Lives and Works: Singapore
Nandita Mukand is a Singapore based artist whose practice deals with Nature and Materiality, exploring themes of connection and spirituality from within an urban context .
She finds inspiration from forests, from trees and plants and lichens and moss and fungi and mushrooms- from things that grow and decay. Layers of accretion and erosion as markers of time, resilience in the face of adversity, the grace imbibed in adapting organically to circumstances, the beauty of chaos-these are some of the thoughts that form the backdrop from within which her heavily textured and layered artworks arise.
In her sculptural works she often breaks down everyday urban and industrial materials and fashions them into organic forms and textures reminiscent of the natural world. The sculptures function as a kind of “urban veil” symbolic of an attempt to look beyond the distractions of city life that obscure and disallow the spiritual clarity that is accessible in Nature. Building up of the sculptures and installations involve repetitive processes that are meditative.
Nandita’s work was recently exhibited at OpenArt 2017, Orebro Biennale in Sweden and Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth at 8Q Singapore Art Museum. She has been awarded artist residencies by the Fundacio L’Olivar in Spain, the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Australia and the Bilpin International Ground Creative Initiatives (BigCI), Australia all of which have enabled her to deepen her research into the natural world.
