Sangam Vankhade, born in 1991 in Vadodara, Gujarat, completed his BVA (2013) and MVA (2016) in Sculpture from MSU, Baroda.
Sangam’s work, as a sculptor, opened new ways through which architectural monuments as a historical phenomena can be understood. His oeuvre explores the synergies between Indian and European, specifically Imperial Roman and contemporary Italian architecture. He is working on a collaboration with UNESCO on working with preserving old materials from his ancestral town Champaner in Gujarat. At present, Sangam is exploring new ways to engage stone, architectural motifs and different material histories in his artistic practice. The recent body of work interrogates a layered sense of monumentality through material, memory and miniaturizations.
He has participated in group exhibitions like National art elicitations Mumbai; Times Art Fest, Ahmedabad; Indian Art Fair and Pepper House, Kochi. His solo exhibit titled Even Stones Tell Stories was shown at Kanoria Centre for Arts, Ahmedabad in 2018.
Sangam’s exhibit with us is called Heritage Padiya (36x36x12 inches) made with wood, metal and acrylic in the year 2021.
