CREATION

Bhajju Shyam, Gita Wolf

From a fish waiting to be born, to the beginning of art and the necessity of death, lore from the Gond tribal community in central india abounds in stories of origins, transformations and endings. Celebrated Gond artist Bhajju Shyam gathers together these tales for the first time. By linking the cosmic with the everyday, he expresses the essence of each myth in ten sequential images. This extraordinary visual narrative of cyclical time takes us from the germinal moment to the turnaround point… where death once again transits into renewal. Gita Wolf’s English text recreates the terse wisdom of Bhajju Shyam’s Hindi expressions with great nuance. This handmade silkscreen-printed edition recreates the brilliant conceptual art of the book, with ink, line and paper combining to add depth and texture to every page.
