Clay and ceramics
A group show focussing on ceramics and pottery with works from artists including Madhavi Subhramaniam, Savia Mahajan, Ira Chaudhuri, Jyotsana Bhatt, Reyaz Badaruddin, Vineet Kacker and Vinod Daroz are on display at Vadodara-based Gallery Ark’s exhibition — Elements in Mythology. The exhibition carries a thoughtful curation of works by India’s leading contemporary artists working within the medium of clay and ceramics.
This exhibition, on view till January 18, 2020, has been conceptualised to bring together a varied range of artistic expressions, from the work of senior artists such as Jyotsna Bhatt and Ira Chaudhuri, who have been integral in spearheading the evolution of ceramics in the Faculty of Fine Arts at M.S. University of Baroda, to the Mumbai-based Savia Mahajan, whose in-depth and experimental approach to ceramics has won her international acclaim.
Founded in 2017 by Seema and Atul Dalmia, Gallery Ark has swiftly established itself as a vital cultural hub, promoting the accessibility of contemporary art and bringing a sense of identity to the ever-growing artistic community of Vadodara. Designed by the architect Aniket Bhagwat, with inputs on the exhibition design from Walter D’Souza.
Elements in Mythology is Gallery Ark’s 11th show and is a part of the gallery’s broader vision to create a dynamic, state of the art space to promote multidisciplinary collaborations as well as promoting conversations on patronage.
