Performance art

With her performance art Sejal steps over the boundaries laid by the classical discipline she trained in. Instead she uses dance as an expressive, emotive trampoline to connect with not just her being and her art but also with the spectators. She says, “I feel the whole evolution of classical dance has created this wall  between the audience and the performer. It is not the dance or the story that is the problem but the way it presented and the pretence with the way in which it is presented – it is too clean, too structured…  with no jagged edges. That’s not reality.”

In dance, Sejal explores and experiences different forms of dance using her classical roots as a springboard. And as she puts it, “My art dissolves boundaries of culture and religion, focusing on the universality of movement and its relevance to life.” For this performance artist dance has been a personal, internal experience: not just about the exterior movement but what was  happening inside her as she went through the motions.  “My paintings  are a reflection of what my body understands; it has always been a direct reflection . From the first sketch I made there’s a huge evolution as each  piece shows my evolution.”

And Mathematics is what gives wings to her creations, “My imagination is the most powerful thing that I have.  And that imagination was created by studying mathematics. If I had studied art I don’t think I would have created such a deep imagination because in Mathematics you are completely thinking of everything that is not there, it is full of imagination.”
