DESCRIPTION

"Sanctum Sanctorum: a corner for four sisters", explores the works of four poets/saints, Karaikkal Amma (5th century AD), Andal (5th – 9th century AD), Akka Mahadevi (12th century AD) and Lal Ded (14th century AD), known for the intensity of their devotional feeling, and loss of illusion.

In a suite of seventeen larger-than-life canvases arranged in an enclosed space, I share my own musings over divinity, mortality and corporality. The interface evokes an experience which is as immersive as their poetry for it alters the viewing distance from which the canvas is normally seen; it confines the audience by surrounding them with monumental images viewed from close up.
