The curator of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2018 has given the exhibition the motto “Possibilities for a non-alienated life”. I think that many of the selected artists are indeed actively trying through their work to keep, repair or establish meaningful close links between life, art and the world. The artists that figured in my last two posts do credit to the motto of the Biennale.

The paintings and drawings of Madhvi Parekh are yet another lucky choice in this regard. She finds inspiration in the memories of her childhood in the village. In her large triptych she starts with one memory, then remembers another story and so her painting grows organically till the canvas is filled.

Her style has kept the spontaneity of the child in Madhvi. It makes her work fresh, simple and authentic. Truly an art that shows us a possibility for a non-alienated life.
