Aham, Nehal Devi, 2020

I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world. I may not ever complete the last one, but I give myself to it. I circle around God, that primordial tower. I have been circling for thousands of years, and I still don’t know: am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song? Rainer Maria Rilke

Nehal Devi is a yogini and an artist, who expresses herself through varied forms: painting, performance, and moving/still images. She explores the seemingly paradoxical relationship between Nehal, the ‘self’ identified with her name and form (the relative ‘I’), and Devi, the unchanging unidentified ‘Self’ (the absolute ‘I’). Her work focuses on I-I.
