UNENDING DANCE OF LIGHT
Seema Kohli thoughtfully juxtaposes two different media to create a visual assemblage that is kaleidoscopic in character and meaning. In order to illustrate dynamism and simultaneous existences, Kohli uses the wall and ground surfaces to create a space within a space. Her video “Swayamsiddha” is projected onto the floor and inside a circular ring of natural rocks, which is designed to signify an abstract representation of a womb. In the video, by combining Vedic chants along with images and sounds of the womb and interstellar space, Kohli invite visitors to symbolically experience the cosmic womb. Overlooking the “Swayamsiddha” video are two large paper scrolls from the “Chausat Yogini” series and the second video “Unending Dance of Life,” which is shown on the wall.
