Devi means Goddess in Hindi, using this as the exhibition name brings our two groups together, one half of the group has explored the theme of Goddesses in Greek mythology and the other half explored the portrayal of Indian women in the 21st century. Taking inspiration from Greek Mythology, for ‘Cassiopeia and Andromeda’ we have explored the portrayal of women, expectations of beauty and myth. For A Brown Girl, Anjali has explored the portrayal of Indian women in contemporary culture. In the Fashion industry, Indian women are not represented except women in traditional Indian dress, women are not portrayed as strong, independent, fearless women which they are.
