Madhu’s practice incorporates project-based multidisciplinary expressions that are filtered from vast tracts of research and oral history. The practice uncovers stories connected to geography, history, community, or an individual persona focused on investigating the projection of identity onto the social and natural world: in a way that the two are woven together in the space.
Madhu lives and works in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
