Art Musings presents Savage Flowers, a solo exhibition showcasing works by contemporary artist Smriti Dixit.
The exhibition presents Dixit’s sculptures are woven, variously, from cloth and plastic price-tags, everyday materials found, made, recycled and upcycled. “These are infinite projects, constructed patiently and repetitively over a period of time and invested with endless labour,” says curator Nancy Adajania. “Dixit blurs the line between the organic and the industrial. Her sculptures are fecund creatures that might startlingly throw out a green shoot if you lavish them with focused attention. Even as they consolidate into archetypal and biomorphic forms that remind us of mandalas, screens, yonis or cocoons, these sculptures are an extension of the artist’s body, its stresses and strains, dreams and disquiets channeled through moments of stillness, growth, and even overgrowth.”
