 Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran: In the Beginning 

Image1

Description

Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran pushes the symbolic and material qualities of clay to produce iconoclastic sculptures that break the rules of the medium.

Combining Hindu and Christian symbolism with the subversive imagery of internet memes, his wildly misshapen characters act as avatars through which to explore gender and eroticism, religion and popular culture, exoticism and outsider aesthetics.

Nithiyendran’s exhibition at the Potter represents an exciting development for the artist, exploring creation myths. Across an entire floor of the museum, vibrant colour and exuberant wall drawings contribute to an immersive environment within which the artist’s idiosyncratic ceramic figures sit alongside a monumental unfired clay sculpture, a new bronze work, and a range of objects selected from the University of Melbourne’s Cultural Collections.
