RAMESH MARIO NITHIYENDRAN
CURATED BY ALEXIE GLASS-KANTOR
For Art Basel Hong Kong 'Encounters' section curated by Alexie Glass-Kantor, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran will present two monumental works which continue his exploration of the politics of sex, the monument, gender and religion. Nithiyendran's increasingly experimental practice foregrounds an intensive investigation of ceramic technique alongside an increasingly apparent conceptual underpinning. In particular, the potential of scale has been explored in monumental ceramic installations such as Mud Men (National Gallery of Australia, 2017). Recent presentations at Dhaka Art Summit, 2018; The National, Sydney, 2017; Kuandu Biennale, Taiwan, 2016; Adelaide Biennial, 2016; and the Ian Potter Museum in Melbourne, have firmly established Nithiyendran as the region’s most exciting emerging artist.
