This curated collection of essays reflects on a four decade long practice of Seema Kohli’s relationship with the arts. Through critical essays and interviews, each piece in the book attempts to trace the complexities and evolution of the artists’ journey and establishes her need to play and experiment with form and story building, with references to her paintings, installations, performance and works in the written word. As an artist, Kohli uses memory, oral histories and spiritual experiences in worlds where the mythical, contemporary, fantastical and real life overlaps. 

Edited by Annapurna Garimella and Sindhura DM, with Anshika Varma as a consultant to the publication, the book brings together essays by eleven art writers from diverse backgrounds. Through their interpretations in four parts of the book: The Body is her Studio, Our Myths Feed her Fantasies, Her Workshop is her Shrine and In Continuum, we are presented with a deep and layered understanding into the urgencies and thought processes of the artist’s journey for the very first time. 


The book places Kohli’s artistic practice at the centre of multiple exercises in intellection.
