‘Chalk Mark’ features new works by Madani exploring education and instruction. They include a series of Chalk Board paintings that engage with the role of copying and repetition in learning, via repeated motifs that are deliberately undisciplined and unruly.
Madani is known for work that deconstructs and satirizes social norms. Early works focused on farcical male figures engaged in crude or intimate activities.
Recent years have seen female figures appear in her work, as well as those of children, and all her work is characterized by an uncomfortable comedy that aligns repulsion with empathy, intimacy with the grotesque.
