Title:
Becoming Tree II

Author:
Shivangi Ladha

Description:
The work Becoming Tree is inspired by my visit to Piplantri, a village in Rajasthan. The village has a unique tradition of planting 111 trees for every female child born. The work questions the true identity of our beloved human race. The self-portrait in the work is not simply a depiction of my being or my sole experiences, but represents the collective voice of a crowd, that is seeking to rise, become, transcend to a state or a place where one is appreciated just the way they are, like trees which are not differentiated by us on the basis of gender, sexuality, race etc.
