The Water Diviner

by Sheba Chhachhi, India

Part of a multimedia installation, It has an elephant floating in the water – a deeply rooted icon of Indian culture – as its protagonist. It draws upon the concept of dowsing for the memory of water. Fixed images and transparencies are used to create an immersive environment, in which each viewer is invited to become a water diviner. Screened in the framework of AGUA at SESC Belenzhino, Sao Paulo, 2018.
