Breaking Ground: Indian Ceramics Triennial
Jaipur: The Contemporary Clay Foundation & Jawahar Kala Kendra, 2018
The group exhibition Breaking Ground took place in Jaipur, the capital of India’s Rajasthan state on 31 August- 18 November, 2018. The exhibition was mean to celebrate existing ceramics traditions in India, as well as contemporary influences. The catalog now available in Cfile, highlights some of the artists represented in the show.
“Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran creates rough-edge vibrant, new age idols that are at once enticing and disquieting. He experiments with form and scale in the context of figurative sculpture to explore the politics of sex, the monument, gender, and religion.”
“Jessika Edgar’s work is an exploration of representation through the idea of formlessness. She is interested in expanding this idea into relationship with socially constructed identity and its value while referencing contemporary popular culture and perception and influences of mass media influences that propagate consumption.”
