Plus Est En Vous


Rational and emotional decisions guide our immediate and long-term aspirations. Fulfillment of these aspirations determined happiness, which can only be achieved by planning and dedication. However, more than often circumstances interrupt our thoughts, actions, and ideas; creating obstacles of life. This subject us to emotional unrest.

Madhvee strongly believes in the ideology of PLUS EST EN VOUS, the motto of an influential noble van Gruuthuse family, based in Bruges (Flanders). “Plus est en vous” translates, as ” THERE IS MORE IN YOU”. This philosophy has helped Madhvee to overcome obstacles in her life. Such self-belief and normalities of life intrigue her, and she is interested in exploring the ways to document these intricacies visually. Madhvee intends to use a method of creation, destruction of the artwork and (Kintsugi inspired) act of recreation as a metaphorical expression. This series uses photography and mixed media.
