Matriarchy now

Melange

I had the opportunity to create a shrine to Matriarchs for the 25th anniversary of Melange in Mumbai.

What is a Matriarch?

I filled box with images of powerful women from Indira Ghandi to the goddess Kali to superstar Priyanka Chopra, asking viewers the question, what is a Matriarch?

Digitally printed photographs on satin, hand embroidered patches, a woven metal box with silver medallions and twinkle lights, formed the modern shrine to Matriarchs past and present.

Working with a master embroider, I was able to stitch my imagination with golden threads.
