The relationship between theme and image using humour as a conduit is a central component of Shivayogimath’s work. Playfulness punctuates the tone of the exhibition by using punch line–esque titles and wordplay. Her pieces seek to create a dialogue with the viewer through the inclusion of a woman’s perspective, with honesty and moxie.
Shivayogimath’s light-heartedness is a device that allows viewers to encounter the works more directly, in a way they can easily understand and respond to. This exhibition intends to use humour to grasp the audience’s attention and invite them to see beyond the joke and enjoy the nuance and depth of the subject matter.
