Benitha Perciyal's sculptures build on the qualities of her material. And for her first solo show in Mumbai, Aggregate, she wil exhibit a new body of work featuring materials such as reused Burma teak, tree resin and African tulip seeds. "Benitha hasalso developed a meticulous way of applying seeds layer by layer on to the cavities of her sculptures," says gallerist Ranjana Stein- ruecke. Especially striking are four wide-mouthed containers cast from a different fibre. "The third room in the gallery will serve as an archive of the materials she workswith. For instance, she is bringing abird's nest. Benitha mimics the style of its construction in her sculptures," she says.
