TRANSCENSION (2017 - 2018) 

by Vimal Kumar featuring Norah Lea

 

Transcension is a series of photographs which depicts the process of a ritual involving the Javanese Southern Sea Goddess, Nyai Roro Kidul. In almost every ritual, there is a yearning to establish a connection with one's revered deity. The worshipper goes through a journey beginning with the invocation of the Goddess, filled with a mood of devotion. The poise, divinity and other attributes of the Goddess are assimilated by the devotee in the proces. At a certain point, the devotee loses oneself, only to discover a sense of oneness eventually, when the worshipped and the worshipped align and merge in transcension.
