Varuni Kanagasundaram — The Vivid Vernacular Cosmopolitans

Fabric of Self 2016

24 January–11 February

Dispersion of people from their homeland and separation from their cultural connections brings a rich narrative that takes into account the journey and the experience of the migrant. This exhibition comprises the practical component of Varuni Kanagasundaram’s PhD research at the School of Art, RMIT University. The ceramic installation captures the convergence of cultural traditions of women from the Indian subcontinent, and the landscape of those that inhabit boundaries of traditions as markings of textile and vivid pigments in clay.
