A selection of photographic prints of Kashmir by Lokadhi Lloyd evoking life on Dal Lake, where watery fields of lotus bloom, aerial walkways meander, life and death mingle seamlessly: the spiritual and the worldly.
The exhibition draws on the experience of having travelled in northern India, a region of sublime beauty and political instability. With reflection, perception and ambiguity as their inspiration, the images extend the artist’s explorations of the notion of boundary within an anthropological space.
All photographs are for sale, individually and as a series of 10: limited edition of 10.
Reflections on a floating world
“If you do not stir up water, it is transparent.
Similarly, you should leave the mind unaltered (natural).
Like the sun, unveiled by clouds, leave the six senses unobstructed as they are (open).
Stay at all times and during all activities undistracted (aware).”
“We are survivors of immeasurable events,
Flung upon some reach of land,
Small wet miracles without instructions,
Only the imperative of change.”
– Rebecca Elson
Series of 10 prints
