Michelle Poonawalla Announces a New Series of Digital Stop Motion Artworks 1

July 2020: Michelle​ Poonawalla is delighted to announce two new digital stop motion artworks, ‘FromDust to Dust’ and ‘MotherTeressa, the eternal symbol of Love and Peace’ which will be available to view or purchase from 16 July on SeditionArt​.com.​

Michelle Poonawalla Announces a New Series of Digital Stop Motion Artworks 3Sedition (pictured right) has shown exclusive works with globally renowned artists including Damien Hirst, Yoko Ono, Wim Wenders and Bill Viola among others and is an online art platform that presents limited edition digital artworks by leading artists at affordable prices. Artworks are stored with certificates of authenticity in an online ‘vault’, for viewing or sale, which can be accessed via an app or web browser. In July, alongside Poonawalla’s work, Sedition will be launching Jono Brande’s collection TheTranscode Series and works from Paul Benney and Louise Stern.

FromDust to Dust’ and ‘MotherTeressa, the eternal symbol of Love and Peace’ have been produced during Poonawalla’s time in lockdown and reflect the challenging times many of us have gone through whilst also being symbols of hope. The works are produced using a digital stop motion video technique, for which the precise and slow nature formed a meditative process for Poonawalla during the lockdown.

FromDust to Dust’ is titled after the phrase ‘from ashes to ashes, dust to dust’ and is a reaction on nature’s ability to humble humanity – something Poonawalla sees as an important message from the Covid-19 pandemic. The work depicts the slow and precise disintegration of a single rose before the petals metamorphosize into butterflies. A vivid representation that however powerful you may be, life is always transient.

The second work ‘MotherTeressa, the eternal symbol of Love and Peace’ reflects a sign of hope. Influenced by Mother Teressa who devoted her life to millions of poor, destitute and downtrodden people, the work looks out to so many of the nurses, doctors and care workers who are helping today. The two works remind us that every aspect of the world is controlled by nature including destruction and regeneration but if we respect everyone and everything around us there is always hope and regeneration.

Both works are available to buy at Sedition.com. Alongside this Michelle is also showing works from her 2019 Hope​ series on Sedition. The three works from the Hope​ series stems​ from the artist’s large-scale multi-sensory installation Introspection​ and draw inspiration from pertinent questions that we find ourselves asking today about where we are headed.

Conserving The Commissariat Building, DR DN Road, by Vikas Dilawari

Mumbai was the first city in India to have heritage regulations to protect its living heritage. This listing and the corresponding regulations binding these precincts would also protect these old areas from burdening the fragile infrastructure with high-rise buildings. These precincts, more than individual structures, puts forward each city’s uniqueness. Heritage awareness is certainly increasing on paper with more nominations of World Heritage Site ensembles. But in reality, its protection on the ground is decreasing at an alarming rate.
