October 2020: Michelle Poonawalla is delighted to announce she has been selected to showcase From​ Dust to Dust in the Art.Lab at World Art Dubai, launching 8 October.​ The Art.Lab is a curated collection of outstanding digital artworks from award winning artists from around the globe. Alongside Michelle Poonawalla,​ the exhibition includes work by Bharti​ Kher,​ Doug Foster and Andreas​ Nicolas Fischer.​

Brought together by Sedition​,​ Arte​ Experience & Samsung​ Art​.Lab shows the focus on highly intuitive, sensitive and stimulating exhibits – showing the world’s leading digital artists who work with cutting edge digital technologies. The exhibition will be on display at World Art Dubai from the 8th to 10th October; the Middle East’s largest affordable retail art fair.

Poonawalla is known for her practice which combines cutting-edge technology and traditional artistic mediums; often utilizing sound, video mapping, projection, motion sensors technology. For Art.Lab her

stop motion digital video work From​ Dust to Dust has​ been selected to be exhibited. Titled after the phrase ‘from ashes to ashes, dust to dust’ the work is a reflection on nature’s ability to humble humanity and depicts the slow and precise disintegration of a single rose before the petals metamorphosize into butterflies. A vivid representation that however powerful you may be, life is always transient.

Intended to be an immersive visual experience, From​ Dust to Dust is also available to view for a global audience who can’t attend Art.Lab, World Art Dubai on the Sedition​ Art online platform.

Other works on show at Art.Lab include Bharti Kher’s Symphony​ in​ which thousands of differently coloured bindis form fireworks and swirls of movement. Can Büyükberber’s new digital sculpture and animated artwork Metafold 03 (pictured above right), from his series Multiverse. And Hyperschwarm 6 (pictured below right),by Andreas Nicolas Fischer, which is made up of 3 triple channel generative media installations, each consisting of three 4 minute videos in 4K UHD resolution.

About the Artist

Michelle Poonawalla is an artist who lives and works between London, UK, and Pune, India.

Poonawalla’s works explore universal, socially engaged topics that resonate with a diverse range of audiences, creating powerful memories and moving experiences. Her practice combines cutting-edge technology and traditional artistic mediums in an emotionally charged and poetic form; often utilizing sound, video mapping, projection, motion sensors and other techniques to bring her innovative paintings and installations to life.

Her seminal piece, Introspection​ (2018), is a striking, immersive experiential artwork which leaves many viewers moved and affected, whilst inspiring them to take action in their own lives. The work has been exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery, London (as part of START, September 2019); Alserkal Avenue, Dubai (Dubai Art Week, March 2019); and as a collateral project at the Kochi Biennale, India (Kochi-Muziris Biennale, 2018).

More recently Poonawalla has begun exploring work with shorter digital format films. Her 3min 36

second film Circle​ of Life addresses​ the idea of memory and is​ exhibited at the 7th Mediations Biennale in Poland. Other digital works can be seen on SedtionArt.com and at the upcoming World Art Dubai, 2020.
