'What A Body Remembers' showcases 35 zinc plate etchings at Tao Art Gallery

In the new body of works at Tao Art Gallery titled, What A Body Remembers, Seema Kohli presents 35 zinc plate etchings on paper titled Memoirs. These are a collection of works done over several years.

The current exhibition traverses some of the most significant cusps of Seema’s journey, of which Hiranyagarbha (The Golden Womb) set her off on a journey where she moved away from flawed, limiting labels of feminism (in its Western construct as being obstructionist) to declare the universe as female, the womb of all creation, the seed of birth, the dot into which everything converges.

 Seema’s use of mediums includes acrylics on canvas with gold leaf and drawings and works on paper. Her sculptural painting Kamadhenu in fiberglass set her thinking as she worked on the concept of gender in realm of pure consciousness. Is gender the outer garb or the packaging? This work has been inspired by the Indian mythological form of Aradhnareshwar-Shiva and Shakti. It is representational of amalgamation of pure consciousness and energy. In the sculptural painting the hump is of the bull and the udders of a cow.

Born in 1960, Seema has showcased over 30 solo shows all over the world in Venice, Basel, Brussels, Melbourne, London, NY, Dubai, Singapore, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore and elsewhere.
