Mudita Bhandari

Mudita Bhandari’s practice is informed by the idea of space and dimension. She is interested in exploring the fluidity of various dimensions and the multiplicity of layers within the structure of existence, whether tangible or intangible, visible or invisible, known or unknown, resting in the ideas of non-dual despite the duality.
Mudita primarily works with clay but often integrates different materials to create fluidity of identity and meanings. Her practice includes teaching and writing, the interactive process of which gives another dimension to her understanding of multiplicity. Intuitive in her process she explores the form beyond the surface texture while spontaneously building them with coils. Inspired by the use of clay in the folk tradition of India, she has been working extensively with terracotta using its porous nature metaphorically as an extension to the idea of impermanence.
