Savia Mahajan

Savia Mahajan (b.1980) initiated her artistic journey in painting and print-making at the L.S. Raheja School of Art in Mumbai. Since 2010, her practice has increasingly focused on themes of resurgence and materiality, evolving through experimentation and developing unique techniques in ceramics. Using clay as a 'carrier material,' she explores the dynamic interplay between material and form, often blending it with various other materials. These developments and incessant experimentation culminated in Amino Soup—her second solo show at TARQ in October, 2023. Mahajan’s most recent iteration of ceramic books and sculptures assert the affinity of her artistic process with exploring materials and objects and their interaction.

The artist’s process cultivates a constant dialogue between making and breaking which has become very integral to her practice. Mahajan’s first solo show, titled Liminal, was held at TARQ in 2017. She has recently been a part of several projects including India Art Fair, Delhi (2022-2024); Art Mumbai (2023); solo project Resurgō at Art Basel, Hong Kong, Discoveries Section (2019); and group presentations including Patterns of Intensity at Art Live Gallery in New Delhi curated by Ranjit Hoskote (2021), Osmosis, a group exhibition curated by Shaleen Wadhwana at TARQ (2019); the Second Edition of The Sculpture Park, The Madhvendra Palace, Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur, curated by Peter Nagy (2018-19); Mutable: Ceramics and Clay Art in India Since 1947, curated by Dr. Annapurna Garimella and Sindhura D.M. at the Piramal Art Foundation, Mumbai (2019); and the Indian Ceramics Triennale, Jaipur, (2018) among others.
