SALONI PAREKH: HYMN OF CREATION
Gallery 1010 (UTK) / 100 S. Gay St., Suite 114 , Knoxville , TN November 11, 2022 - November 12, 2022
Hymn of Creation is an allegorical interpretation of the macrocosm's beginning, featuring works by Saloni Parekh. From many stories of creation, Parekh focuses on the 129th Hymn of the Rig Veda, known as ‘Nasadiya Sukta’. The agnostic approach in the hymn about the creator and creation fuels the imagination to a newly objectified realm of mythical symbiosis. The approach of painting, drawing and video in the exhibition handles the topic of religious studies from a performative studies perspective.
