Miaja Gallery, in collaboration with Ikkan Art Gallery, will present Singapore-based artist Nandita Mukand’s solo exhibition “Mind(less) Wilderness”, curated by Tanya Michele Amador from 17 Jan to 2 March 2019. In collaboration with Ikkan Art Gallery, this exhibition mingles observations of how plants grow in the forest with the workings of the urban mind. Drawing upon diverse resources such as neuroplasticity, quantum physics, contemporary Buddhist texts, and ancient Vedic literature, Mukand presents paintings and sculptures using a myriad of both synthetic and organic materials. Weaving together objects found in nature, such as seeds, with paper and encased in resin, she intertwines her chosen ingredients with threads of cloth, signifying the ways in which today’s urban life is interconnected while mourning the contemporary belief systems that restrict our true potential.
Nandita Mukand is a Singapore-based artist. Her work deals with the relationship with Nature and spirituality from within the contemporary urban context. She employs materiality to question the impact urban life has on our experience of time and the meaning we give to our own existence.
