Nandita Mukand is a Singapore-based artist whose practice encompasses sculpture, installation and painting and whose work has been exhibited and collected in Singapore and internationally. Drawing upon her interest in metaphysics, neuroplasticity, quantum physics and contemporary buddhist texts her work often mingles observations of growth and decay in the wilderness with the workings of the urban mind.
Nandita’s work was included in the OpenART Biennale 2017, Sweden and Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth, Singapore Art Museum. Other notable exhibitions include solo shows: Forest Weft, City Warp (2017-2018), The Materiality of Time (2015) and group shows: Exploring BigCi, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Australia (2015), Untapped, Chan Hampe Gallery, Singapore (2016), Fundacio L’Olivar Summer Exhibition, Spain (2016).
She has been awarded artist residencies by the Fundacio L’Olivar in Spain, the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, Australia and the Bilpin International Ground for Creative Initiatives, Australia, all of which have enabled her to deepen her research into the natural world.
Having quit a successful corporate career with Proctor and Gamble to devote herself full-time to art making, Nandita graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (First Class) from Goldsmiths, College of London via LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. She received the LASALLE Award for Excellence for outstanding student of the year (2014). Nandita is also an alumna of the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta and has a degree in Electronics Engineering.
