Forest

This participatory installation was part of Madhvi's solo show Mapping Memory at Gallery Chemould (2017) and was also shown earlier at Playeum in Singapore (2014). Here she invites the audience to contemplate their own personal connection with the earth, by adding trees to build a forest and engage with the material through their sense of touch. Shaping the clay offers the opportunity to reconnect with a primal collective memory of mark making and collaborative energy.
