Maadhyam, a group exhibition by nine contemporary Indian artists, explores how the mediums or materials used by artists in their artworks become an integral part of their storytelling or narratives. The participating artists are representing their works in different mediums, bringing back the third dimension and moving away from paintings and drawings. The exhibit is as diverse as the subjects and is executed in a wide variety of materials such as terracotta, metal, ceramics, paper pulp, cement, stone, wood, and tapestry. These artists are creating an altered perception for us when they place their works on their respective platforms such as a floor, in a frame, on a pedestal, alongside a wall, or on the wall. Using shape, size, comparative position, and space, sculptures inspire us to observe the world we inhabit from a whole new perspective. Each one of these artists juxtaposes symmetry and asymmetry, order and chance, reason, and randomness.
