Sadhvi Jawa uses tapestry-making as a conceptual vehicle that comes out of experience and response to an ever changing urban milieu. Her tapestry weaving integrates unconventional materials and methods that assimilates architectural and design sensibilities. She creates a certain tension in her artwork by combining contrasting characteristics of materials where dense clay with that of sparkling silk yarn; creating an intriguing dialogue within the weaved surface, techniques of heavy building with that of soft and delicate stringing; there is an embodiment of multi-layered experiences of communities in a urban milieu. The continuous state of change found in an urban space suggests fluid identities of people and their places. It is a meeting point for multiple trajectories, where there is a tension between rootedness and the transient milieu of communities and places; between old and new ways of being. Her methods of making and use of color tell narratives of Bangalore city of Southern India, which once was known as a garden city, and is now known for its ever-expanding IT industry. The body of works titled, Confluence of Narratives shared for the show Material Metaphor narrates the experiences and responses about places in Bangalore, with variegated hues in the sense of their color, materiality and social groups that inhabit them. The pieces address the issue of how the advancement of one community has overridden the progression of previously existing communities.
