A contemporary reflection of an ancient ritual.

MURTI, (‘moor-thee’) is a communal participatory installation about worship and ritual in our contemporary age. A Sanskrit term, ‘murti’ is an embodied icon of the Divine. Reflecting on the ancient Hindu ritual of bathing stone idols in water and milk, MURTI invites people to pour vibrant paint upon a large-scale sculpture that reimagines the most revered and abstracted Hindu icon, the Lingam.

Lingam, meaning sign or mark, is also known as the cosmic egg. It is iconic of the formless deity Shiva, and is typically a phallic symbol made from stone, alluding to the qualities of creation, destruction, and the infinite. Inspired by the symbolism and worship of the Lingam, MURTI exhibits a grand sculptural idol as a site for public interaction, viewing and gathering. Through the re-enactment of these rituals by audience members, and the pouring of paint as a gesture of worship, MURTI questions ideas of sanctity, divinity and connection.

Conceived by visual and performance artist Devika Bilimoria, MURTI is an invitation to an experiential interpretation of consecration that gives people an opportunity to reconnect with paint, intention and their body.

All audience members will have opportunities to pour paint upon the idol throughout the opening night. The installation is available for viewing throughout the evening and a week to follow.

Opening Night: 7 Dec 2018 (Fri), 6–9:30pm.
