Madhvi’s practice, explores the performative intersection between sculpture and installation and is informed by her consistent engagement with the sensuous materiality of clay. Madhvi’s focus predicates the possibilities and challenges of meditative multiples and immersive installations, through which she contemplates the ever-changing concepts of space and place.
