The works of art highlight the adult mother-daughter relationship and the role played by this powerful bond in the development of the contemporary female identity, based on the adoptive relationship between the artist and her mother. Weaving Labyrinths: A Ritual of Mark-Making and Soft Sculptures is a collective art work by Nandini Hasija.

The artist contextualizes the theme of being an adopted child and having solely adoptive relationships within the family and otherwise and how this has influenced the process of her identity development.

Nandini has attempted to explore and study this theme of child adoption through the performative means of mark-making with an element of ritual at its centre. Her autobiographical nature of mark-making evolves into a making of labyrinth like forms thereby developing two primary characteristics: Repetition and Layering.

Through further experimentation and exploration, the artist has then moved from working within the confines of two dimensional surfaces of mark-making to three dimensional approaches through the processes of weaving, knotting and binding resulting in the conception of soft sculptures.

Each of these sculptures has been made with strands of jute, woven across a self made handloom, into a fabric. This fabric was then developed into an organic and bodily form, commenting on the absence of body in the narrative of adoption.

The process of exploring identity development of an adoptive child within the mother -daughter relationship has resulted in an exhibition of drawings and soft-sculptures.
