Inflorescence by Osheen Siva
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.
