Centering ritual, ceremony, sacred spaces, and community gathering, Raghvi Bhatia has developed her artistic practice as a religious sect. As intermediary within her sect, Raghvi’s practice parallels the structure of organized religion that positions itself between the god and the believer. Dealing with themes of impurity, fragility, time, and trust, the work in this exhibition exists in service of Raghvi’s religion.
Raghvi Bhatia was born in New Delhi, India. She holds a BFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently pursuing an MFA in Sculpture at UCLA. Bhatia has previously exhibited in USA, Delhi, and Morocco.
