Its a special work for me this one. Sayapatri-100 Layers, is a work that focuses on the life-giving force of Mother Earth / Papatuanuku. Rendered over my 2 month residency at KCAC. The process is to honour the monsoon season in Nepal. The artwork is constructed of local Nepalese materials associated to ceremony & ritual, collected daily with monsoon rain. The evolution & physical growth of the artwork through both artist and audience participation hopes to emulate the energy associated to the life cycle of the healing, cleansing abundance of the monsoons fertility.
