In celebration of International Women’s Day 2019, The Private Museum (TPM) is pleased to present From Lost Roots to Urban Meadows by Singapore-based artists, Madhvi Subrahmanian and Nandita Mukand, from 22 March to 5 May 2019.
As part of TPM’s Women Artist platform, this joint exhibition follows the most recent developments of the artists’ practices, featuring installation and sculptural works informed by their ongoing explorations into nature and how it inserts itself in our urban world.
Subrahmanian reflects on the fluid interconnectedness of nature and urban culture. Bringing together conceptual and sensory experiences, her works are often participatory and/or immersive in nature. Her contemplative process attempts to probe how nature imprints itself into our everyday life through her investigations into city structures, space layouts, archaeological sites and the displacement of objects by shape-shifting shadows.
Drawing upon her interests in metaphysics and its abstract concepts such as being, knowing, identity, time, and space; and neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to reorganise itself by forming new neural connections throughout life), Mukand’s works observe the deep intricacies of nature mingled and merged with the workings of the urban mind.
Through the inquisitive lens of the artists, From Lost Roots to Urban Meadows seeks to challenge our perceptions of nature and life – inviting the viewer to delve deeper into our urban existence with and without nature.
