Cosmic Bloom: Iconography for a re-imagined world order 2017 Concept Note: I’m presently exploring new archetypes or perhaps revisiting forgotten mythologies as a response to the several inter-connected and tangential issues surrounding sustainability, consumption, geology and ecology. I’m referencing subtle dichotomies while alluding to the power of empathy, resilience and nurture. This iconography proposes an eco-centric world order as an antidote to the current trend of anthropocentrism. Butterflies, one of the leitmotifs in this body of work, are considered as bio-indicators of the health of an eco-system. They are highly sensitive creatures and react immediately to even subtle changes in the environment. They are the first ones to leave if a particular habitat becomes unsustainable. The Biosphere sculptures on the other hand engage with the idea of how we see the earth itself in our daily musings. Unlike a typical globe these objects are shorn of all markings and territorial demarcations alluding to a primordial time of pure potential. In the Cosmic Bloom sculptures a hybrid of the egg, nest, seed and pod emerges which is at once familiar as well as intriguing. Oscillating between human-centric and elemental imagery I attempt to strike a balance between what is and what could be. This body of work consists of sculpture, installations and video art and is a thematic continuation of my two earlier series titled Golden Bough and other stories from the landfill (2015) and Future Fossils (2016).
