In lure of new World - 2021
This series of work is created for Collect Art Fair, responding to theme of Meditation on material and was represented by Ruup & Form, London.
The process of sewing is a repetitive meditative act; if one imbues it with an enquiry into a recurring question, in absolute silence, then one receives the answers in the process. This process is like japa, where the focus is on the act of repetition, to go deeper into consciousness and the self, which eventually results in clarity and self-discovery.
My new work is the continuation of this process of enquiry, in these times of pause and reflection. I am looking at the act of creation of something new – a new world, which has not yet been. For that, there is a need for shredding and undoing of what I already know and possess - my ideas, collected maps and artefacts, to map out the new world which won't be geographical with borders, boundaries and identities; instead, these new worlds will be charting into the emotional and spiritual space - a utopian world and an abstract piece of map of balance and harmony along with co- existence and reverence.
