Sarika Bajaj’s art exhibition Requiem is a collection of sensorial and tactile multi-media art works which build upon (also) the symbolism of bird feathers. It highlights the multidimensional aspects of peoples relationship with nature.

Sarika’s  ‘Requiem’  draws attention to climate change and  a slow demise of natural species. Her current art work is process oriented. She collects found bird feathers and weaves them into jute to make tapestries. The exhibition includes photographs video wall hanging and a stunning sculpture made of ropes. Requiem emphasises the environmental threat the species face in a rapidly urbanized world. Current ecological concerns such as climate change and loss of habitat pose a threat to birds worldwide. Sarika Bajaj has employed repetitive and labour-intensive techniques such as sewing knotting twisting ravelling and unravelling of bird feathers to generate forms of distinct symbolism.

Crafting earthy abstract topographies Sarika Bajaj’s works occupy an important space between conventionally defined categories of art-objects. In her tapestries the bird quill-sections appear partially camouflaged within the rhythmic structure of the panels interwoven within a composite of membranes and threads. The artist attributes her use of feathers to the place birds have in mythology and their ritual presence in Indigenous cultures around the world.
