Sunrise Ceremonies can be seen as documentation, a narrative which is weaved from more than five years. It serves as both, a ritual and as an instructional manual, being a culmination of countless days and happenings, of performances as a day-to-day endeavor.
What inspired the series?
The project came about when I chose Instagram as a platform and made use of this new media to disseminate images. It has taken form of a visual diary, an insight into the artistic process. With this, I’m able to reach a wider audience. I combine images with text, which is instructional and in sort of haiku format. With this exhibition, all the images come together and in their physical form.
The act of wearing the ‘head’ and doing dailies as a routine, where I can’t see and almost blindfolded, is like teleported into an imaginary space. It’s a meditative process.
You are also unveiling your new toy sculpture ‘soul sister’ can you give us a glimpse into the sisters?
Soul Sister is the second in the series of The Pea Family Toys - limited edition toys hand crafted from wood. Each toy is conceptualised as a work of art and made with great attention to detail by award winning craftsmen in India.
What are you thinking of creating next?
I've already started working on it; it's an interactive piece of performance.
It's based on the toy Soul Sisters which we have just launched at the show on 20th January 2017 at Gallery Sakshi.
