"Kumari believes that each completed works stimulates the next one, and that while they may take different routes at different moments, her pieces are connected by common themes that need to be developed in different ways. In this way, the idea of time, and time passing, is embodied in her work."

Revisiting - An installation

This installation “Revisiting Nature” is a take on the ordinary. It embarks on a journey of what we often take for granted. It celebrates the ‘ordinary and mundane’ and transforming them into characters coined as Song & Dance. The introduction of the floating Angsana Seeds from Seeds & Pods series introduces another dimension to this installation.


The Seeds & Pods series symbolises new life and untapped energies that arouse and stimulate a multitude of sensations in the viewer. It generates the creation of forms in the Song & Dance series. The seed speaks about pure energy within. It represents possibility, mobility, velocity, new life and regeneration.


Song & Dance series, premiered at the Shanghai Art Fair 2011, is a theatrical showcase of chillies, exudes each of their individual personalities and emotions through various movements and disciplines. Their eccentricities are expressed through the engagement of their shapes, forms, textures and colours. Whimsical and yet elegant, they capture an honest expression of celebration and joy.

Anahata

Comprising more than 4,000 kg of saga seeds collected from across Southeast Asia, Anahata site specific installation with seeds and sounds – A combination of history, architecture and location are used as a metaphor for a centre.

Anahata is a Sanskrit term which means “un-struck” or “unhurt” and rests at the centre of the fourth chakra which is at the core of our spirit. It is here that we open to connect with harmony and peace simultaneously with the material and metaphysical worlds.

The seeds are potentialities of expressions. Every seed tells a personal story – Beneath every story of brokenness or pain, wholeness, bondless love and a wellspring of compassion reside. In the same note, I hope the endless energy from thousands of seeds will be transmitted to the audience.
