Kavitha first came our way when she helped out with our Festival launch party in 2016 and has been making installations with us ever since, getting more ambitious with every year as she’s found her groove as the abundantly talented artist she is. Seeing her step up for 2021 is a special moment to behold.
Much like her 2019 Blob Fish, this year’s design celebrates bright and beautiful ‘ugliness’ in the form of colourful, untamed, interactive soft play sculpture. Swipe through for a handful of sneaky peeks from Kavitha’s tests & sketches + a couple of snaps from her latest exhibition!
