Indian, born in 1965

The wall panels and sculpture installations of Prabhavathi Meppayil are the final result of hundreds of subtle and regular acts that enhance the inherent qualities of the media and of the traditional Indian tools used by the artist. Her multiple engravings of simple shapes – dotting panels of immaculate plaster – result in highly captivating abstract compositions.

The daughter of an Indian goldsmith, Meppayil develops a very personal artistic language, by linking the heritage of this ancestral know-how and a Western poetics of monochromatism and serial repetition. Her essential work, subtly evocative of goldsmithing, constitutes a unique dialogue between Indian culture and post-minimalist concepts.

The work of Prabhavathi Meppayil was first shown by the Pinault Collection at the 2016 “Accrochage” ("Hanging") exhibition at the Punta della Dogana.
