Sunanda Khajuria’s Cherry Blossom

In Sunanda Khajuria’s two accordion format books she notes, “what I have created for this show belongs to my series of Moving Landscapes which are the culmination of my experiences of different times and places during the last few years. In these books I pay attention to different perspectives and dimensions of the cherry blossom, using it as a symbol for life and death. The brief life span of these small flowers reflects the everlasting cycle of life, death, and rebirth. When these blossoms come into being each year, they are celebrated for their overwhelming beauty, yet simultaneously mourned for their tragic brevity of life. The blooming season is powerful, glorious and exciting, but unfortunately short-lived – a visual reminder that our lives, too, are fleeting.”

The Cloud of Cherry Blossom was launched at Art Heritage during The Art Book Exhibiton, 2019. View installation shots of the show here.
