SEASONS GREETINGS | HAPPY NEW YEAR | REWIND 2021
Dear friends, 
Seasons Greetings.
Wishing you all a very happy, and healthy year ahead. We look forward to 2022 with greater learnings, immense gratitude of the living moments with our families and loved ones.
 
The unpredictability of year that went past has not seen the closure to unprecedented global pandemic. Presently we are amidst another Corona variant that is ushering us into new year with newer realities of the year ahead. Hoping year three of the pandemic will be better than year two, and covid-19 will have much less impact on health and our everyday activities.
 
My present work  on a title  ‘EPOCH 2020: RELEVANCE OF GANDHI IN PRESENT IN PRESENT TENSE -Time, Rebirth, Iconology ‘ is work in progress that was inspired by the lived experience of epochal times we all were witnessing in 2021. The sufferings of unimaginable dimensions were unprecedented. The realisation of Gandhi’s  philosophies that I had visually narrated in last 10 years started to resonate with me in relevance to the unpredictable times we were cruising in.The idea of ‘adherence to ones duty’, ‘self reliance’, ‘upliftment for all’, ‘self rule’ seemed the resolve to way forward, and that led me to investigate as what is time as a temporal  phenomenon, and ‘picture theory’.
 
 I  am immensely grateful to Prof W J T Mitchell (University of Chicago) for his research on ‘Time, iconology of time and image theory’ that inspired me to contextualise my new works as an artist in the last two years. I am thankful  for his participation  as a keynote speaker  for webinar hosted by Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, IGNCA , New Delhi. Sharing Prof Mitchells keynote address during the webinar.
 
Epoch 2020 is scheduled to exhibit in physical gallery space in 2022.
Sharing my Rewinding moments of 2021.Thanks from the bottom of my heart  for your appreciation and engagement with my works
 
Wishing you all safe and protected times ahead. Peace, good health, and prosperity for you and your loved ones.Warm wishes & regards,
Shelly Jyoti

 It was an extraordinary evening filled with thought-provoking lectures and deliberations on ‘Time, times in pandemic, relevance of Gandhi in present times’. Our keynote speaker Wjt Mitchell from University of Chicago gave an insightful lecture on ‘Threads, fibre and yarns’ using it as metaphor for temporality of time on Epoch 2020 and epoche, the punctuated moment in our present times.
