Please browse through the various past exhibitions Madhvee has participated in. Deb feels these exhibitions gave her a chance to connect with her audiences on a personal level. They also allow in-person interaction with works, thus an opportunity for her to see the reactions and emotional connections the works generate.
YOU ARE ALL INVITED
CURATED & PARTICIPATED – GROUP EXHIBITION
1 March – 31 March 2019
ChinaHouse, Penang, Malaysia
An exhibition initiated by the Penang Monthly Meetup for Artists and Art Enthusiasts hosted by Madhvee Deb and Ju Underwood
This exhibition is inspired by the idea of breaking down the psychological barriers that prevent many people from engaging with art. In order to encourage participation, submissions are open to all, and all work will be displayed. To make the exhibition environment approachable it has been organised to be user-friendly and relaxed.
The second concept of this exhibition is continuous curation. The curators aim to periodically generate contrasting arrangements, to provoke the viewer to different readings of the works according to context.

“Landings,” the title of this year’s M.A. Fine Arts Graduation Exhibition. The selection of the term by the graduates, however, also underscored the importance placed on the journeys that preceded them, and I would add the beginnings. Despite the unknown outcome of such journeys, and the complexion of the different stages, they have persevered through the trials of temporary setbacks and failures to come to some form of resolution with their art practices. The journeys we take with art are never easy, and for the large part, they take us into unknown and unexplored realms, both for oneself and the art community at large, to even proffer a compromise between art and self. The setting of an artificial dateline such as a graduation show is akin to a temporary wayside station to rest and contemplate, to ponder and to strategize our next moves, and never a final destination to

The expression ‘huis clos’ appears in the middle of the sixteenth century to say “behind closed doors”, an expression in which the word “clos”, meaning “to shut” was eventually picked-up by the English language to become today’s verb “to close”.
One might also think of a family as a “huis clos”, because every family has its secrets, habits that neighbours do not need to know. The family, even in the XXI century, still is the backbone of society and will probably remain so for a long time; A tight and closed human unit upon which the larger society rest.
Based on the above notion Madhvee made contact with a Singaporean family and, visited them at different times of the day, to experience various aspects of their everyday life and turn that “closed” experience into a photographic portfolio.

The giraffe has intrigued various cultures, both ancient and modern, for its peculiar appearance. With towering legs and long necks, giraffes have beautifully patterned coats—but no two individuals have the same design. And they gather in loose social groups if they happen to be moving in the same direction.
But is the giraffe silent? Often considered to be quiet and non-verbal, giraffes actually communicate with one another infrasonically over long-distances—while at other times, they may grunt, whistle or hiss. Giraffes, like the artists in the MA Fine Arts programme in this show, have a range of interesting strategies to navigate life. Come discover the subtleties and surprises.
