The Mothers
Iain Michael Brunt and www.gonemodern.com are pleased to present four sculptures “The Mothers” by Surbhi Modi on Brownhart Gardens Terrace, Mayfair by kind permission of The Grosvenor Estates. September 21st 2019 – April 31st 2020.

Each piece is unique made from fibre glass and steel and prices for a single sculpture is £19,500-00

The Mothers installation is a culmination of the mother and child series, that Surbhi has been working on since 2015. The installation features four monkeys, each of them related but unique, to comment on the precious mother-child relationship. As a mother of two herself, the installation is highly personal. She has individually hand rolled over a million strands of hair and painstakingly modelled them onto the monkey body. The face has been cast in brass, a material that she uses often. The mothers imposingly take up the four corners of the Gardens, as a symbol of quiet strength, protection and tender loving care. Their smiling faces and vibrant colours do little to belie the unmistakable feminist underpinnings of the work.
Surbhi Modi is a multidisciplinary artist who reinterprets and reimagines disparate materials into objects, sculptures, installations. She revels in creating iconic pieces that are driven
by rigorous research, deeply conceptual thoughts and a genuine love for the unusual.

The result are sculptures - where form fights function, the abstract and the figurative collide and
where man-made materials meet natural elements to form objects that ride dangerously on the
precipice of practicability. Some are functional, while others wear the artifice of functionality. These
are tribal or baroque, decorative objects that question the purpose of art and ponder its futility.
Surbhi lives and works in Delhi and London.
