R@MESH: Volume II is an expansion of the bold proclamations of Nithiyendran’s institutional shows which have since evolved into a self-reflexive investigation of relationships and power, holding a mirror to the world at odds. Traces of Nithiyendran's personality are embedded, as sartorial flamboyance, but also as self-mockery. Self-portraiture, according to the artist, is a theme that runs through all his work, toeing the line between narcissism and self-parody. Playing along with the idea of the artist as a brand in today's age of screen culture, Nithiyendran's laughter is truly contagious.
