A walk-through our SOFT SANCNTUARY where your senses are heightened through the fragrance of memories, the touch of delicate spatial hemp weaves illuminated by the warmth of floral agar lamps.
Textile artists Sanya Sharma, Pallavi Padukone, and Yi Hsuan Sung's collaborative immersive sensorial environment expresses their shared joy of the handmade. Individually their practices explore the fields of fragrance integrated in textiles, natural fibers, 3D spatial handwoven installations and floral lighting objects made from seaweed. Soft Sanctuary is the curation of work born out of their apartments in isolation during the uncertainty of 2020 to weave together stories of time, spaces, and nostalgia. Honoring natural materials and making using creative craft forms has been their means of meditation and staying connected.
A blank space filled with their reflections of the time we are currently living in and the opportunity to introspect, create and share.
Welcome into their Soft Sanctuary.
Stay, feel and immerse.

Using fragrant roots and scent-coated yarn and embellishments, her work explores the concept of fragrances for wellness and how they can be expressed visually through color, patterns, and textures. Padukone uses textiles as aromatherapy to condense time and distance and create an immersive experience to reconnect with nature, nostalgia, home, and identity. Pallavi received her MFA in Textiles from Parsons School of Design.
