EVENTS & EXHIBITS

Inflorescence

by Osheen Siva
Friday, 20th August TO Sunday, 12th September

the exhibit

Inspired by her Tamil and Dalit heritage, and fueled by speculative fiction, Osheen Siva weaves a future universe of amalgamation and imaginations. In this world, aberrations and exceptions thrive — as her mutated beings bask in their unique feminine energy, heal, and reclaim their power. Weaving the fabrics of past and present, heritage and futurity, Siva imagines a future of solidarity and sisterhood, of resilience, and of manifestation of her ancestral dreams.

Her art is inspired by mythological reinterpretation, histories of women warriors, Afro-futurism, science fiction and subconscious worlds .

Inflorescence is the process of flowering in which a group or cluster of flowers stem from one stem. Imagined by Siva as a metaphor for how we all (humans and aliens alike) come from the same root but support and flourish together.

the artist

Osheen Siva is an illustrator and artist from Tamil Nadu, based in Goa. Her works revolve around themes of femininity, sexuality and gender and its intersection with technology and society. Through the lens of surrealism, speculative fiction and science fiction and rooted in mythologies and her Dalit and Tamilian heritage, Siva imagines new worlds of decolonized dreamscapes, futuristic oasis with mutants and monsters and narratives of feminine power generally lacking in popular art and culture.

Past clients have included – Adult Swim, Gucci, Vans, Converse, Levis, Dr.Martens, Verve Magazine, Sofar, Medium, Decolonize Fest among others. They were also an Illustration Jury member for the One Club for Creativity – ADC’s 100th Annual Awards in 2021.
